Transition from FTP to SFTP for SeaBASS Data Submissions and batch FCHECK requests

As you may have seen, there exist critical security vulnerabilities within FTP (File Transfer Protocol), and all FTP-based SeaBASS services, including data submission and FCHECK (via FTP) requests, will be permanently disabled and removed on 19 March 2018.

SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol), which offers similar functionality and uses individual accounts for each data submitter, will serve as the replacement.

The SeaBASS Team has updated the SeaBASSS data submission guidelines with the new procedures for how SeaBASS data submitters may apply for SFTP access to submit their data to the SeaBASS archive and how to run FCHECK requests via SFTP on SeaBASS data files.

We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause.
