File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is the standard protocol for transferring files to and from remote machines running FTP service. FTP offers less interactivity for the communication between labels and DSP.
Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is similar to FTP except that it encrypts both the command that execute the file transfer, as well as the data being transferred, whereby reducing the chances of eavesdropping during transfers.
Unique upload and download folders should be created according to the choreography standard. The standard is available from URL.
Messages should be ingested in order of folder timestamp.
Incoming and outgoing files should follow a standardised, descriptive naming convention, including version and/or timestamp. Such a standard reduces the possibility of processing the same file multiple times. These are also defined in the aforementioned standard.
