#4177 closed Feature request (rejected)

Store files on remote server encrypted

Lets put this in a scenario:

Imagine that we have been allowed by our ISP to store information on their server using FTP to upload the information.
I would not like the server admins, or any other persons to access this information.

This could be done by not sending the file I want to store, but an encrypted version of it. When I later download it, it has to be decrypted.

I would like this feature be put in to the FileZilla program, so that it is easy to use (eg: no need to first encrypt the file using a separate program, and then upload that file). It could be added in the Connection Manager, where rules for download / upload could be applied (one for encryption, one for decryption)

This would be a great help for securing data placed on unsafe servers.

I would like to say that FileZilla is a great utility for FTP.

Such functionality is out of the scope of FileZilla. Please use a dedicated encryption toll like for example GnuPG.
