SecEx is a network file manager and secure terminal emulator that allows encrypted file transfer between your PC and network servers running Secure Shell. SecEx interoperates with either SSH1 or SSH2 servers on both Unix and Windows operating systems. You can transfer files to and from remote servers, view remote files, and execute remote files on your local PC - using encryption. SecEx automatically detects available carrier protocols available on server systems. Newer SSH servers tend to make SFTP (Secure FTP) available while older secure shell implementations feature SCP ( Secure Copy Program). SecEx also shields against IP and DNS spoofing by recording a server's public host key. During subsequent connection attempts, the known host key is compared to the host key offered by the server.
