Anyone here familiar enough with SARBANES-OXLEY to tell me if 128 bit SSL based encryption for file transfers (FTP) will satifsy or do you start with the IPSEC route and avoid SSL altogether?
I searched the rules (not line for line, used an index) and find vague guidelines but nothing
I just really want how SOX defines, not general opinion on encrypted file transfers.

I don't have much experience with SOX, but you might want to post your question here:

I don't believe it is enough..........if I remember correclty, 256 AES is the lowest encrypt you may go to satisfy.........but I'm not entirely sure........

Will be going to similar routes for sure....
Thought it might be a fun thread in contrast to the many recent "xp sp2 sucks" threads...

128 bit will be just fine as long as tests proove that you are using it and that your company's board will sign of that they understand that you use it and as far as they are aware (and your auditors) it is working as you describe. Your auditors will undoubtedly want to pass comment, but 128 bit should be fine.
SOX (to the best of my knowledge) does not set out specifc technical standards, its basically designed to ensure that Directors sign of (and therefore accept accountability) that controls are in place.
For specific criteria you would be better of looking at FDIC, BS7799 etc requirments.
