1.Forwarding files with FTPS client software

Risks of FTP communication

In publishing the website, it's required to upload the materials such as images or HTML files of Webpage to the server for publishing. And it's required to forward each setting files to server in using the function of mail forwarding or access limitation as well. Then the protocol called FTP is used for renewing the Website as means of forwarding data between computers.

But this FTP forwarding system is regarded as means with problem for the security reason because the interchange such as communicating user's ID or password is not encrypted and has risk of being snooped. In the worst case, there might be the case that published webpage is falsified as well as website itself is taken over.

Uploading from FTPS client sofware

We will use FTPS in forwarding files to Web server here. FTPS is the protocol of forwarding files with encrypted secure communication by SSL or TSL between computers and we don't have to worry about being snooped.

In forwarding files with FTPS, we are required to install the client software which supports FTPS.In forwarding files, we are required to connect publishing server from the client software and upload the files.
