TIP 214: Using Secure FTP

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) was originally defined in the early 1970s and it's the method virtually every Web designer uses to upload files, download files, and move files around on the Web server. However, what many Web designers don't realize is that standard FTP doesn't encrypt or obscure the transferred data or even the login password.

Needless to say, this is especially important for anybody dealing with ecommerce, credit-card transactions, or very sensitive information.
