BizTalk Server 2013R2 SFTP Adapter - Cipher support (BLOWFISH) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    It appears that the SFTP adapter only supports a subset of commonly used ciphers. I'm trying without success to connect to a server that is using blowfish, without success. There currently seems to be 3 options in the port config - AES, TripleDES and Auto. I assume auto will negotiate between AES and 3DES - but I wonder if there is any further cipher support ?

    Regards, Jason

  • Agree with you Jason and this MSDN Blog confirms that currently supported Encryption Ciphers are 3DES and AES. It doesn't support target systems with blowfish at least in this release.

  •  you can expect it in the future releases.



    Is this something you know (and in that case, do you have a source/link?)

  • No, BizTalk 2013 R2 only supports AEA and TripleDES, if you want Blowfish you need to upgrade to BizTalk 2016

    From https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/biztalk/core/sftp-adapter

    Encryption Cipher Available starting with BizTalk Server 2013 R2. 

    Enter the kind of encryption cipher.

    BizTalk Server 2013 R2 options: Auto, AES, and TripleDES

    BizTalk Server 2016 options: Auto, AES, Arcfour, Blowfish, TripleDES, and DES
