Release Details

Security Enhancement: Transfer Security Using SSH Fingerprint

Files administrators can add the SSH fingerprint for a given transfer node to the node configuration in Files. When configured, the Aspera Connect client that underlies the Files app must validate the configured fingerprint against the Aspera transfer node.

This security enhancement allows client nodes to ensure server node authenticity, protecting the client against server impersonation and man-in-the-middle attacks. Administrators can also initiate an immediate poll of a node to update changes recently made on the node.

Note that this configuration is unavailable for ATS nodes.
