Abstract

Non Repudiation Secure File Transfer Protocol (NRSFTP) is designed to resolve three main concerns for today's electronic file transfer methodology. The three main concerns are Non-Repudiation, Secure, and Non-Real Time file transfer. Non-repudiation is to assure the receiver that the sender of the document is not an imposter. Secure document transfer is to assure the sender that only the intended receiver will be able to read the document. Non-real-time file transfer is to provide convenient and low cost transportability of the encrypted data from one party to another. With the above three concerns addressed, the NRSFTP protocol can be widely accepted by the general public as the method to securely transfer a file.
