FFFTP Password Secrets

FFFTP stores all your FTP login passwords at following Registry location

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sota\FFFTP\Options

Below this Registry location, separate registry key (with name “Host0”, “Host1”, “Host2” etc) is created to store each FTP site data.

Here is the exported Registry data for one of the FTP site “Host1”

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sota\FFFTP\Options\Host1]
"Set"=dword:00000000
"HostName"="ftp.xenarmor.com"
"HostAdrs"="ftp.xenarmor.com"
"UserName"="xenuser"
"LocalDir"=""
"Password"="0Ccc8286eebc45f81655d4beb8b649563a:0db8f20a8d33fbfac96e7644dc2c15de1724487cf00592c06d304093fc8c5fcc"
"Sort"=hex:ff,ff,ff,ff
"Bmarks"=hex(7):00,00
"PKey"="0Cc0fdf07dadb046a6da55185f80bdc4b2:192bb3cada3f5f058b4838b2cec83cc2e7a26a904c7f2da483adffe91cd97bef"

Here “HostName”, “UserName” & “Password” registry values refers to FTP server, username & encrypted password respectively.

Password field contains 2 parts separated by ‘:’. First part contains IV data (except first 2 characters) and second part is encrypted password.

FFFTP application first generates encryption key by performing SHA1 hash of the Master Password and two static magic texts. Then this key along with above IV data is finally used to encrypt the FTP password using AES-256 algorithm.
