FTP is a file transfer protocol based on the specification defined in RFC 959 from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), which was most recently published in 1985. Since FTP was originally designed for use in private scientific and research networks, RFC 959 does not include specifications for encryption of authentication information (e.g., usernames and passwords) or encryption of data files in transit.
Secure FTP is a broad term that refers to two primary technologies that encrypt authentication information and data files in transit.
