SSH File Transfer Protocol (sFTP) is a version of File Transfer Protocol (FTP) using an encrypted network connection provided by Secure Shell (SSH), usually SSH-2.

The sFTP protocol allows for a range of operations on remote files, making it more like a remote file system protocol. sFTP clients can resume interrupted transfers, get directory listings and remove remote files. sFTP has largely replaced the older Secure Copy Protocol (SCP).[1]
