SFTP runs over SSH 2.0. SSH is an encrypted network protocol that utilizes various asymmetric and symmetric encryption algorithms.

For more information about SSH, check out these sources:

Rebex SFTP makes it possible to specify which cryptographic algorithms can be used by the underlying SSH protocol.
