Supported User Authentication Methods

Tectia MFT Events is designed for automating file transfers, so the user authentication needs to be done non-interactively. Secure methods for non-interactive user authentication are certificates and public-keys with empty passphrases.

However, Tectia MFT Events supports also the other user authentication methods for verifying the user identity, for example, when uploading the public keys to remote servers.
