Aspera Secure Copy is a network protocol which offers file transfers using FASP between hosts on a network using SSH for data transfers and authentication.
cURL is a command line tool for getting and sending files using URL syntax.
EAR - Encryption At Rest
Encryption at rest or "filewise encryption" is a feature stores files transferred with Aspera "encrypted" at their final destination. The recipient will use the password supplied by the sender to either decrypt the files upon download or after download using the freely available Aspera Crypt application, available for Windows and Mac.
FASP transfer technology is an innovative software that eliminates the fundamental shortcomings of conventional TCP. As a result, FASP transfers maximize the utilization of available bandwidth to deliver unmatched transfer speeds and to provide a guaranteed delivery time regardless of file size, transfer distance or network conditions.
Representational State Transfer is a software architecture style consisting of guidelines for creating scalable web services.
Simple Object Access Protocol is a protocol specification for exchanging structured information in the implementation of web services. It uses XML for its message format and relies on other application layer protocols for transmissions.
Secure Shell is a cryptographic network protocol for securing data communication. It establishes a secure channel over an insecure network in a client-server architecture, connecting an SSH client application with an SSH server.
Transmission Control Protocol provides reliable, ordered, and error-checked delivery of a stream of octets between applications running on hosts communicating over an IP network. TCP is the protocol that major Internet applications such as the World Wide Web, email and file transfer rely on.
User Datagram Protocol uses a simple connectionless transmission model with a minimum of protocol mechanism. It has no handshaking dialogues, and thus exposes any unreliability of the underlying network protocol to the user's program. There is no guarantee of delivery, ordering, or duplicate protection.
