I am not a AS/400 programmer but overheard my colleagues and suggested them to use SSH. Greatly appreciated if anyone can suggest here...
They have a batch job which creates a text file containing the sftp command passing IP address, username, password and the file to be transferred. I suggested them to use SSH and create private and public keys. Transfer the public key to the destination windows server and then SFTP without the password to make it secure. But their security compliance requires even to remove the username from the file. How can we achieve this? Is it true that if any other user gets this username then they can use the same to transfer any file from the iSeries system to the target location? Since I am not a AS/400 guy I am stumped. Please help.
