Cornell Secure File Transfer

Cornell Secure File Transfer is a secure method for transferring files smaller than 5 GB and allows anyone with a Cornell NetID to send and receive files. Cornell community members can add an external user to a whitelist in Cornell Secure File Transfer so that an external user can also send and receive files. 

Before using Cornell Secure File Transfer to share, store, or collaborate with institutional information, review the Regulated Data Chart (Cornell Secure File Transfer is listed in the Collaboration Services section).

Never send files containing restricted or confidential data as attachments to an email.

Using Cornell Secure File Transfer requires a computer with an Internet connection and a recent version of a major web browser
