Server-Side Encryption

Filezilla Aws Ec2

With Server-Side Encryption Amazon S3 encrypts your files as they are uploaded and decrypts
on download.

To configure FileZilla Pro to use Amazon S3 Server-Side Encryption:

Filezilla Aws S3

  1. In Site Manager edit your S3 entry.
  2. In the S3 tab select the encryption type:
    • No encryption
    • AWS S3 encryption: use Amazon S3 managed keys.
    • AWS KMS encrytion: use Amazon S3 keys stored in AWS Key Management
      Service (KMS). Select the master key:
      • Default (AWS/S3): for the AWS managed key.
      • Custom KMS ARN: for a customer managed key. Enter the ARN (Amazon
        Resource Name) for the key in the Custom KMS ARN box.
    • Customer encryption: use the key specified in the Custom key box. You can specify a Base64 encoded key by prefixing it with base64:

Amazon STS

You can access S3 resources that belong to another user by using temporary credentials provided by the AWS Security Token Service. This is done by assuming a role created by the granting user.

  1. In Site Manager edit your S3 entry.
  2. In the S3 tab enter:
    • Role ARN (Amazon Resource Name): this identifies the role created by the granting
      user. Your user will assume this role.
    • MFA Device Serial: your MFA (Multi-factor authentication) device identification if the
      role trust policy requires multi-factor authentication. This can be either a serial for a
      physical device or a registered ARN for a virtual device (eg an authentication app in your smartphone).

    When connecting and if the MFA device serial is configured you will be asked to provide
    the token code generated by the MFA device:
