First, this isn't URGENT for anyone here. We volunteer our time, and answer what we want to, WHEN we want to. Second, this is even LESS urgent than normal, since it's not only a blatant homework question, but one that's easily answered with a quick Google search.

Hmm. I'd have thought someone who understands 'Computer Security' would have a good understanding of the question material already, or at the very least would know how to find it quickly. Don't bother to send me your resume.

You know, I couldn't help but think the same thing.

And I also wondered why the 'friend' couldn't look it up themselves...especially when the original post said:

Rather than "my friend is writing a short essay...". And I sure can't think of a single time in my entire professional career when I've been asked to write an essay of ANY sort, especially on a very basic topic. Now in school, though...I can remember it...

...The very reason I took double maths & physics. Boys aren't meant to write essays.

Yeah, I know, and yet I can't help but like old Burgers, as despite my somewhat frosty riposte, he thanked me by clicking my "Rep" button --- I mean, talk about turning the other cheek!
Luv u Burgers...

FTP/SSH users are remote users using applications that are in client/server mode. Generally FTP users are chrooted somewhere in the system to keep them from traveling anywhere important. FTP is insecure. SSH uses encryption and starts you off in the user's home directory -- just as console access does.

Console access uses the mingetty program (minimal getty) to provide input/output to the system. These days I believe there are a default of 6 tty terminals that start with the system, accessible locally by pressing ctrl-alt-f1-6
