SSH File Transfer Protocol is the standard file transfer protocol for use with the SSH2 protocol, as scp was the standard file transfer protocol for SSH. Unlike scp, the SFTP protocol (as implemented for example by the client program, sftp) does not require access to the shell on the remote site.

Despite its name, SFTP is not related to the FTP protocol. However, many modern FTP clients incorporate SFTP capabilities into the same user interface, together with FTP capabilities.
