QNAP NAS supports both SSL & SSH for secure connection and data transfer. Users can access websites which are hosted on the NAS via the HTTPS (SSL over HTTP) secure channel. Besides, the NAS also supports SSH for secure remote shells and SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol or Secure File Transfer Protocol) for safe file access and transfer. The encryption used by SSH is intended to provide confidentiality and integrity of data over an unsecured network, such as the Internet.
