SPEEDE will always connect to with this IP

Yes, the two systems are compatible. It requires only a conversion of our public key from the format to the OpenSSH format on your SFTP server.

Yes. The SPEEDE Server uses SCP (secure copy protocol) to send documents securely through encrypted channels. The SPEEDE Server also allows registered users to send files to it via secure FTP using a subsystem of the SSH protocol (hereafter, referred to as “SFTP”).

The SPEEDE Server administrators need to connect to your server to complete an initial “handshake,” which involves uploading our public key to your server. Basically, you need to have an SSH server with the SFTP subsystem configured. You also need to send the Clearinghouse a user name and password, along with the server’s host name or IP address. The SPEEDE Support team will then upload the Clearinghouse public key and confirm that we can connect to your server securely using public key authentication. Once this is confirmed, SPEEDE is ready to send electronic documents to you via SCP.

No. The SPEEDE Server needs to use public key authentication when sending documents. Using a password is an interactive step (waiting for a prompt on the screen), whereas the SPEEDE Server sends via SFTP in batch format.

First, you must establish an FTP account with the SPEEDE Server, which you can request when you register for SPEEDE. Please inform the SPEEDE Support team at that you are going to send files via SFTP so we can update your FTP account to a SFTP account. You can choose whether to connect to the SPEEDE Server using a password or public key authentication. If you choose public key authentication, we will need your public key installed in your SFTP directory on the SPEEDE Server.
