Secure Remote Logins and File Copying





Conclusion

Most Linux security books strongly recommend using SSH and SCP over TELNET and FTP because of their encryption capabilities. Despite this, there is still a place for FTP in the world thanks to its convenience in providing simple global access to files and TELNET, which is much easier to implement in price-sensitive network appliances than SSH. Consider all options when choosing your file transfer and remote login programs and select improved security whenever possible as the long-term benefits eventually outweigh the additional cost over time.
