Datascope Select SFTP public host key

Hello Team,

where I can find public key for SFTP server for Datascooe Select?

It is the key used as host certificate to authenticate the Refinitiv SFTP server, so that clients can be certain that they are "talking" to the correct SFTP server?

Hi @Lukasz Ossowski,

I checked with the DSS product team, and unfortunately the public key or the fingerprint is not published.

The only option to ensure TLS security is to follow the section: Manual SFTP with Key Authentication Setup Example in the ftp user guide linked earlier. It does however require that a user first connects to ftp using credentials and drop their RSA public key in the ftp server.

If you feel that this is inadequate for your security needs, then I would recommend you to raise a product enhancement request at my.refinitiv.com.

Hello @Lukasz Ossowski,

There is some good information in the S/FTP User guide, but no mention of the RSA keys. I will try to raise it with product management and get an answer.

Meanwhile, if you want - this is the SHA256 fingerprint of the key which I have been using for a past few years:

@Lukasz Ossowski

I checked and found that the ssh-keyscan command can be used to get a host key.

ssh-keyscan -H select.datascope.refinitiv.com

I found this command on this How to easily add an SSH fingerprint to your known_hosts file in Linux article.
