    Unix command line function to switch to super user mode. This function works on most system as long as the super user has a password. Otherwise, see sudo instead.

  • vsftpd

    Very Secure File Transfer Protocol Daemon, an FTP server that allows people to transfer data between computers. It is marked as very secure, at least it is as secure as an FTP server can be (although there has been several security advisories for this tool...)

    Remember that an FTP transfer is rarely using an encrypted pipe (it is possible to use kerberos and SSL to really secure the data transmission) and also because it uses a data stream opened dynamically, it is possible for hackers to spoof a data connection.
