FTP over HTTPS, Secure?

FTP over HTTPS is a method for transferring files over the Internet that combines the FTP protocol with the security of the HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) protocol. In this method, the FTP data is encapsulated in an HTTPS connection, providing encryption for the data being transferred.
While FTP over HTTPS provides some security benefits compared to regular FTP, it is still not as secure as other file transfer protocols like SFTP or FTPS, which provide encryption for both the control channel and the data being transferred. Additionally, FTP over HTTPS can be subject to the same security vulnerabilities as regular HTTPS connections, such as man-in-the-middle attacks or certificate spoofing.
It's important to note that while FTP over HTTPS provides some level of encryption, it may not be suitable for sensitive data transfers that require a higher level of security. In these cases, a more secure file transfer protocol like SFTP or FTPS is recommended.
