Good morning, and thank in advance for your help.
I have been tasked with setting up an IIS Server using FTP. Generally not a problem, but they have asked to set it up using a Public/Private key for Token authentication. No user name or password will be exchanged.
From my research, I believe this can be done, but I need to create a new Custom Provider. I have already disabled anonymous and basic authentication, and added the IisManagerAuth, but I do not think this has everything I want to do.
I think I need to create a new Custom Provider, Register it, and add the Public Key to it. I am just sure of the steps involved in doing this.
Most of the clients connecting to this FTP server will be UNIX/Linux/Ubuntu. The reason IIS was chosen was for the ability to use Virtual Directories.
Any help would be appreciated.

Now that you need to use something like Asymmetric Cryptography authentication provider. Maybe you could just try the FTP basic authentication+SSL connection.
In addition, IIS FTP support the Client certificate mapping, so maybe you could use it to force FTP client to pass the private key of client certificate.

Thanks for the suggestion.
They decided to go a different method.
