Until 2019, the CeBiTec provided an anonymous FTP service for transferring large files from and to the CeBiTec computer systems. For security reasons, this service was discontinued at the end of October 2019. FTP provides no means to encrypt data during transmission and is therefore highly insecure. The FTP protocol was developed at a time when efficient file transfer was more important than secure data transfer.
