Cget, Cput, and Stage - Safe File Transport Tools for the Internet
Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies
Cget, cput, and stage are three simple programs that
implement authenticated or encrypted file transfers on the Internet.
Cget and cput read
and write files to a remote host, and stage ensures

hosts. They are simple, paranoid Unix
tools that can be used to support systems that operate in a
