Cross platform Encryption / Decryption applications for secure file transport

I have a client who is in need of a file based encryption / decryption application to be used between Linux / Windows 2003 Server. The goal is to have a single file compressed nightly on a linux platform and secured using a script, transmitted over FTP, decrypted on the Windows 2003 server and available for other import routines such as SSIS, etc.

The file can remain unencrypted on each end after transport, the desire is mainly to keep the file secure during transport. Firewall rules and the fact that IIS6 doesn’t support SFTP eliminate SFTP as an option. Simplicity is the primary focus here, so complex security options or heavyweight libraries cannot be used.

To GnuPG I would add Thawte (or similar) s/mime keys for email.

GnuPG has executables for every major platform and most email clients support s/mime keys for encryption.

You could try GnuPG, it’s cross platform and since you are only sending files internally you don’t really need a certificate signed by a big-name certificate authority.

Also you can use our OpenPGP task for SSIS when you need to load the protected data into SSIS.
