When configuring a web user's authentication settings to SFTP you can allow the user to authenticate using a public SSH key. This can replace the need for a password or enhance your security settings by forcing the user to provide both a password and a key.
In order for this to work you must place the web users public key into the *installation folder*/userdata/keys/ssh/ directory. The file name must match the user name with the .pub extension (e.g. jsmith.pub).
With version 3.1.0 and later of GoAnywhere Services, this process has changed. The SSH keys are now stored in the GoAnywhere Services database and are no longer stored on the file system. Please refer to the Web Users SSH Keys section of the GoAnywhere Services User's Guide for more information.
