Security for Galaxy on the Cloud

I have my galaxy instance on Cloud via Cloudman. However the site connection is insecure. Any files uploaded via FTP will be clearly visible. How do i make the Connection Secure?

Unfortunately, secure FTP is not currently supported on CloudMan out of the box.

It should be possible to set it up manually by obtaining an SSL certificate and installing an SFTP server, but that’s likely to involve quite a bit of system administration.

The new GVL 5 offers SSL out of the box, although no FTP support at all. However, the latest Galaxy that comes with GVL 5 supports large file uploads so, if that’s a reason for using FTP, it should be addressable.

Hope this helps.

Just use scp instead?
