The SFTP adapter is an add-on that runs on the SAP NetWeaver Process Integration adapter framework. It is a client application that connects to the SFTP server for exchanging sensitive business data between trading partners through a secured channel over the network. The SFTP adapter encrypts the business data with Secure Shell (SSH) protocol before transmission. At the destination, the SFTP adapter decrypts and restores the original message based on the SSH protocol.
