ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_232:  Secure File Transfer Program (SFTP)
   An architecture with the capability to send and receive files
across a multilevel secure network.
   The Secure File Transfer Program is written by the BDM Corporation.
It provides a means of transferring sensitive information from one
computer system to another. This system implements Transmission Control
Protocol (TCP) and conforms to RFC:793. TCP provides a reliable
communication between pairs of processes in logically distinct hosts on
networks and sets of interconnected networks. The TCP resides in the
transport layer of the DoD Internet Model. The system encapsulates
messages received from the utility layer protocols, which reside
directly above, and passes the packet to the Internet layer
(communicates with the Internet Protocol (IP)). The TCP supports the
following functions: connection-oriented, reliable data transfer,
ordered data transfer delivery, full-duplex, and flow control.
