It’s All About Keys (Secure Connectivity & B2B Add ons)

The following sections will provide the wiki links which contains the key generation steps and how to import them in to nwa key storage. It is organized based on the component.

SFTP Adapter:

[Generating SSH Keys for SFTP Adapters – Type 1]

[Generating SSH Keys for SFTP Adapters – Type 2]

[How to Determine the Public Key Finger Print of a SSH Server]

PGP Module:

[Generating ASCII Armored PGP Key Pairs]

OFTP Adapter:

[Generating OFTP Test Keys with Extended Key Usage]

[Importing OFTP Test Keys into NWA Key Storage]

The above mentioned links will explain all the required steps required for key generation and how to use them along with the rich screenshots. It would be great if you leave the comment, in case of any suggesstions/questions/clarifications. So that it will be clarified and updated in the content itself.

In upcoming blogs, I will be writing about nature of each keys and when to use each type with different use cases.

      Hi Experts,


      The scenario is PI should push the files to intermediate server after encrypting and from intermediate server the files are transferred to actual receiver. To encrypt the files they are using public key generated as below:


      Step 1:- open cuteFTP Tools --> Global options



      Step 2: Select the paths for public & private key pairs, then click on Create identity file. Then they have chosen key type as "RSA".



      Step 3: They gave input of pass phrase and click next.


      Step 4: Then they gave name to public & private keys and clicked Finish.


      They gave key size as 1024 and key type as RSA. More over they selected security type as SSH2 security but not openPGP security .

      So can I use the public key generated using these ways SAP PI receiver comm. channel to encrypt the data before pushing to receiver FTP folder?

      Here the scenario is drag and drop the xls file generated on application server of ECC and push the encrypted file using public key generated as above to a folder in FTP server form where the bank transfers the file to their servers. Please suggest the ways to do it
