|GridFTP WG (GRIDFTP-WG)|
Group Type: Working Group
Group Secretary(s): Jay Alameda
This group focuses on improvements of FTP and GridFTP v1.0 protocol with the goal to produce bulk file transfer protocol suitable for grid applications. New protocols should be backward compatible with RFC959 FTP as much as possible with new features added as (negotiable) extensions. Some desired extensions are: parallel transfers, GSI authentication, and striped transfers.
