In this book different aspects of File Transfer Access and Management (FTAM) is analyzed and studied using ISO 8571 to facilitate the interconnection of computer systems. File Transfer can be implemented using different protocols, such as File Transfer Protocol (FTP), SFTP & Telnet etc. However, in this book focus will be on implementation and studying the Access and Management aspects of FTAM. FTAM is closely related to ISO 8571. ISO 8571 defines a file service and specifies a file protocol available within the application layer of the Reference Model. It is concerned with identifiable bodies of information, which can be treated as files, and may be stored within open systems or passed between application processes. ISO 8571 defines a basic file service. It provides sufficient facilities to support file transfer, and establishes a framework for file access and file management. ISO 8571 does not specify interfaces to a file transfer or access facility within the local system.
