Conclusion

FTP is a very useful software application that can have enormous benefit to a Web site or to collaborative computing in which files need to be shared between business partners. Although insecure, it is universally accessible, because FTP clients are a part of all operating systems and Web browsers. If data encryption security is of great importance to you, then you should probably consider SCP as a possible alternative. You can find more information on it in Chapter 17, "Secure Remote Logins and File Copying."
