Description:High performance, firewall friendly file transfer
Abstract: UFTP is a data streaming library and file transfer tool
with the following features:
- dynamic firewall port opening using a pseudo FTP connection
- parallel input/output streams
- optional encryption of the data streams using a symmetric key algorithm
- platform independent, written in Java
It is integrated into UNICORE and allows to transfer data from client to
server (and vice versa), as well as providing data staging
between UFTP-enabled UNICORE sites.
Standalone usage (i.e. without UNICORE) is possible as well, requiring a
trusted user gateway and authentication point such as a portal.
