Secure file transfer

Here you will find information on Handelsbanken's public cryptographic keys.

Handelsbanken acting as SFTP server

In order to use SFTP vis-a-vis Handelsbanken (i.e. when we act as an SFTP server) you will need to download our SSH public host key. This key will make it possible for your software to ensure that you communicate with the correct server, and avoid so-called man-in-the-middle attacks.

The SSH host key must be installed in your SFTP software. Please refer to your documentation or supplier for details. The key you download from us is safe, i.e. it need not be kept a secret.

Public PGP key

To ensure the safety of file content, we offer the use of the PGP encryption method. This method uses a technology known as asymmetric encryption, or public key cryptography.
