SHA intgrity validation

Hi,

sftp answer both questions :
authentification, and confidentiality!
But what's about integrity?
I think that a checking via exchange of checkum SHA/MD5 would benefit SFTP largely?
no?

Re: SHA intgrity validation

MD5 checksums are supported only by the latest SFTP version 5. Problem is that probably no server supports the version yet. The most widespread SSH server, OpenSSH, supports only version 3.
