Encryption and server-initiated transfers

When SecureTransport performs server-initiated transfers, it defines user classes by UID and GID only – no user name is specified. As a result, if you use EncryptClass for encrypting or decrypting transferred files and EncryptClass is defined only by user name, the following is true:

  • Encrypted files transferred using a server-initiated upload are decrypted before the start of the transfer.
  • Files transferred using a server-initiated download are transferred with encryption.
