I would like to transfer files from Unix machine to Mainframe system (using Unix machine as client). The transfer process need to be secure (ie. data sent thro network should be encrypted using 128-bit encryption algorithm). I came to understand that SFTP server is not available for Mainframe systems and hence using SFTP is not an option. Please let me know any other alternatives for the "Secured File Transfer to Mainframe system". - Dhinesh

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Take a look at NDM (Network Data Mover). It is a secure (but expensive) solution.

    How about SSH, OpenSSH, rdist, rsync? Are any of these available for the mainframe?

    SFTP (which is part of the SSH package) *is* available on the mainframe, but has some limitations: it cannot directly access native datasets. An alternative is FTPS, which is FTP-over-TLS (previously SSL). As long as you don't have to pass a firewall, it is a viable alternative.
