Default How to transfer files securely?

I want to download a file from a Linux computer.
But if I'm using FTP, someone can get the Password with a Sniffer and has access to the FTP-Account on the Linux PC.
What other protocolls could I use?

Which ones are a little bit more secure?

Thanks...

Since you are using Linux, have you given SSH any thought?
(Secure Shell) It is similar to telnet but is secure.
There are several offerings out there but only one I know
of has a Windows client.

SSH Communications Security

I also found this with a quick Copernic search:
http://security.sdsc.edu/tools/secureftp/

Secure FTP is a client package that allows for a secure
connection to be made to an FTP daemon. In this release, we
support connecting via the Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL.
Future releases may support other authentication mechanisms
(e.g. Kerberos, OPIE).

This client is supported on Windows and any Unix platform
where a Java 2 (or Swing) runtime environment is present.
It was written in 100% Pure Java and can act as either an
application or an applet. The applet version will only run
under Windows at this time, but we are looking into other
solutions.

Secure FTP is available in English, Japanese, and Italian.

Since crypto is present in this product, US export
restrictions are in affect. If you reside in an embargoed
country you will not be allowed to use this product.

And here is another:
http://www.vandyke.com/products/securefx/

SecureFX lets you choose standard FTP or secure data
transfer with FTP over an encrypted SSH2 connection. It
has a simple Explorer-like interface, so it's easy to learn
and use.

One Client for Standard and Secure File Transfer - If your
company network, ISP or web host supports SSH2, you can
create a fully encrypted FTP session using SecureFX.
SecureFX can also handle all your non-secure FTP
connections.

Easy To Use - Just drag and drop files between local and
remote systems. Over 200 predefined sites and a New Site
Wizard get you started fast.

Advanced Features - SecureFX supports multiple concurrent
transfers, server-to-server transfers, and site
synchronization.

Thanks for your answers!

But I need something I can use in Delphi, may be a component
or better a source code. The sites are all full with products a can order.

Something like SSH would be very helpful, but it must be something with source, if it is possible.

There are NO delphi components that handle SecureFTP.

You could write your own FTP Server and FTP Client
based upon the Indy code and implement encryption into
them. Download Indy at http://www.nevrona.com/Indy/Download.html

Other than that option, I have no more ideas for you.
