Aftpd is an FTP server for anonymous access designed for Unix-like operating systems. It uses an asynchronous model of connection processing and provides service for all users within a single process; can use multiple threads to run more efficiently on multi-core systems, with each thread serving multiple clients simultaneously; uses effective mechanisms of transferring files, minimizing copying of data in RAM (sendfile or a combination of the system calls mmap/writev); uses effective event notification schemes (kqueue on FreeBSD and epoll on Linux); uses poll or select in older systems; and supports IPv6. For safety, it works as an unprivileged user and uses chroot.
BSDftpd-ssl is a secure and easy-to-use FTP server that supports industry standard TLS/SSL encryption and authentication for whole FTP sessions and data transfers. This implementation supports both the original FTP protocol and the RFC2228-compliant TLS/SSL enhancement. The package contains the secure FTP server (named "ftpd") and a command line TLS/SSL-aware FTP client (named "ftps"). The server's features include logging of transfers, changing of a session root (known as "chroot"), and virtual host support.
Fugu SSH is a Mac OS X graphical frontend to OpenSSH's Secure File Transfer application (SFTP). SFTP is similar to FTP, but, unlike FTP, the entire session is encrypted, meaning no passwords are sent in cleartext form, and it is thus much less vulnerable to third-party interception. Fugu allows you to take advantage of SFTP's security without having to sacrifice the ease of use found in a GUI. Fugu also includes support for SCP files transfers, and the ability to create secure tunnels through SSH.
oftpd is designed to be as secure as an anonymous FTP server can possibly be. It runs as non-root for most of the time, and uses the Unix chroot() command to hide most of the systems directories from external users--they cannot change into them even if the server is totally compromised. It also contains its own directory-change and directory-listing code (most FTP servers execute the system "ls" command to list files).
Sharehound is a network file systems indexer and Google-like searcher written in Java and based on Apache Lucene. It currently supports SMB file shares (i.e. MS Windows-based network shares) and FTP resources. A Web UI is used for search and crawl monitoring. An RSS feed is provided for search results that include deleted files info.
