  1. 1. An overview of FTP By, Indhurani C
  2. 2. Contents Introduction to FTP Objective Communication and data transfer FTP login facilities Syntax Security issues FTP commands FTP reply codes List of FTP clients List of FTP servers Conclusion
  3. 3. Introduction to FTP FTP – File transfer protocol in the application layer Standard network protocol Authenticate- clear text sign in protocol Command line applications – The first FTP client Secured transmissions –SSL / TLS
  4. 4. Objective Sharing of files Indirect use of remote computers Protect the user from variations in file storage Transfer of data reliably & efficiently
  5. 5. Communication and data transfer The server responds, 3- digit status code Optional text message Eg: 200 OK
  6. 6. Contd… FTP may run in two modes, Active mode Passive mode- PASV command
  7. 7. Data representations Transfer data over network, ASCII Image/binary mode EBCDIC mode Local mode
  8. 8. Contd… ASCII- Used for text Image/binary mode- byte transactions EBCDIC mode- 8 bit character encoding used in IBM Local mode- sends data in proprietary format
  9. 9. Data transfer Data transfer can be done in three modes, Stream mode Block mode Compressed mode
  10. 10. Contd… Stream mode - continuous stream of data Block mode – several blocks namely block header, byte count and data field. Compressed mode- data is compressed using run length encoding Run- length encoding Eg. wwwwbbwwbbw-4w2b2w2b1w
  11. 11. Login Credentials Ftp login-username and password Username –USER command Password –PASS command No login credentials-Limited access
  12. 12. Anonymous FTP Username- ―anonymous‖ Password- e-mail ID No verification is done
  13. 13. Firewall Traversal FTP transfers data only after getting permission from server Firewall blocks PASV command
  14. 14. Syntax FTP, URL syntax is described as, ftp://[<user>[:<password>]@]<host>[:<port>]/<url- path> For example: ftp://public.ftpservers.example.com/mydirectory/myfile.t xt
  15. 15. Security Issues Bounce attacks Spoof attacks. Brute force attacks Packet capture
  16. 16. Secure FTP FTPS SFTP FTP over SSH (not SFTP)
  17. 17.  FTPS FTPS is an extension to the FTP standard that allows clients to request that the FTP session be encrypted. AUTH TLS command. The server has the option of allowing or denying connections that do not request TLS.
  18. 18.  SFTP SFTP, or secure FTP, is a program that uses Secure Shell (SSH) to transfer files. Preventing passwords and sensitive information from being transmitted FTP clients cannot be used to talk to an SFTP server
  19. 19.  FTP over SSH (not SFTP) FTP over SSH (not SFTP) refers to the practice of tunneling a normal FTP session over an SSH connection No confidentiality or integrity protection
  20. 20. List Of FTP Commands GET ABOR DELE PASS AUTH RNTO PWD MODE ALLO RMD
  21. 21. FTP Reply Codes 3-digit code The first digit is used to indicate one of three possible outcomes—success, failure or to indicate an error or incomplete reply 2yz 4yz or 5yz 1yz or 3yz
  22. 22. Contd… The second digit defines the kind of error: x0z – Syntax x1z – Information x2z – Connections x3z – Authentication and accounting x5z – File system The third digit of the reply code is used to provide additional details.
  23. 23. LIST OF FTP CLIENTS Cyberduck lftp gftp FireFTP FileZilla
  24. 24. Cyberduck The developers of the cyberduck are David V. Kocher, Yves Langisch Java language. Cyberduck is an open source FTP and SFTP client for Mac OS X and Windows Supports FTP/TLS- using ―AUTH TLS‖ command.
