What are you trying to transfer?

We're looking at sslexplorer -open source-maybe you can integrate the
automation part with it. It is more an ssl vpn solution but can be used
easily for user driven file transfer. 
Very easy to setup, and works nicely so far in testing.

Subject: secure transfers and authentication

Hi List

I was wondering if anyone had run across anything that would help with my
current project.   I am looking to automate transfers over an insecure
network where both the client and server are authenticated to each other.
My current line of thinking is using ssl signed certificates from our
Certificate authority to do the authentication and then https to transfer
the data.  Putting aside that http may not be the best transfer mechanism
for data can anyone make any suggestions or point out any potential
pitfalls that maybe there?  It is vital that the transfer is protected
and that the client and server is authenticated.
