Date:|13 Jan 2023 12:12:03 -0500|
In order to remain in compliance and up-to-date with accepted secure file transmission guidelines, on Friday, January 27, 2023, CSAPP will be updating our file submission (sFTP) server to OpenSSL 3.0 with FIPS 140-2 enabled. If your location utilizes a Public Key for transmission, please pay close attention to the information below. If you do not know if your system utilizes a Public Key, please contact your software provider.
After the server update, our system will no longer accept older, out-of-date keys during the key exchange.
In order to ensure that you are able to continue to submit files to CSAPP, please make sure that your sFTP client or pharmacy software supports the following, more-secure key types:
Once your client / software has been updated, in order to ensure continued file submission, please generate a new Public Key and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your sFTP username so that the key can be added to our sFTP server. If you do not utilize a Public Key for transmission, you do not need to generate and send a key. Modern versions of sFTP clients should support OpenSSL2.0 with FIPS 140-2.
