The Question is:

When will scp (secure copy) be part of OpenVMS, or what do I need to make it
 available on OpenVMS today?
I need to copy a lot of Data using FTP today, I need to encrypt these data...
 Please help!

The Answer is :

  Encrypt the file using your choice of host tools, and then use COPY/FTP.
  Alternatively, OpenSSL is available, with SSH expected in TCP/IP Services
  V5.4 and later.  And commercial and open-source ports of scp and sftp
  are readily available for OpenVMS.
