FTP Server : ProFTPD Over SSL/TLS
2018/11/13
 
Enable SSL/TLS for ProFTPD to use secure FTP connections.
[1] Create self-signed certificates.
But if you use valid certificates like from Let's Encrypt or others, you don't need to create this one.
[root@www ~]#
cd /etc/pki/tls/certs

[root@www certs]#
openssl req -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /etc/pki/tls/certs/proftpd.pem -out /etc/pki/tls/certs/proftpd.pem -days 365

Generating a 2048 bit RSA private key
......+++
.................................................+++
writing new private key to '/etc/pki/tls/certs/proftpd.pem'
-----
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
-----
Country Name (2 letter code) [XX]:JP   country code
State or Province Name (full name) []:Hiroshima    State
Locality Name (eg, city) [Default City]:Hiroshima  city
Organization Name (eg, company) [Default Company Ltd]:GTS  company
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:Server World     department
Common Name (eg, your name or your server's hostname) []:www.srv.world  server's FQDN
Email Address []:root@srv.world   admin's email

[root@www certs]#
chmod 600 proftpd.pem

[2] Configure ProFTPD. Configure basic settings before it, refer to here.
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/proftpd.conf
# add to the end

# enable SSL/TLS
TLSEngine                 on
TLSRequired               on
TLSProtocol               TLSv1.2
TLSLog                    /var/log/proftpd/tls.log
TLSRSACertificateFile     /etc/pki/tls/certs/proftpd.pem
TLSRSACertificateKeyFile  /etc/pki/tls/certs/proftpd.pem

[root@www ~]#
systemctl restart proftpd

[3] If Firewalld is running, allow FTP related ports.
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/proftpd.conf
# add to the end : fix PASV ports

PassivePorts 21000 21010
[root@www ~]#
firewall-cmd --add-service=ftp --permanent
