Net::SFTP::SftpServer is a Perl port of sftp-server from OpenSSH
providing access control on a per user and per command basis with
improved logging via syslog.
This version of the Net::SFTP::SftpServer Perl module currently
implements SSH File Transfer Protocol version 3.
The limitations compared with the OpenSSH implementation are as follows:
- Only files and directories are dealt with - other inode types are not
returned on readdir.
- A virtual chroot is performed - / (rootfs) is treated as the users home
directory from the client perspective and all file access to / will
be in /<home_path>/<username>. The <home_path> is defined on object
initialisation, it is not obtained from /etc/passwd.
- All symlinked files or directories can be hidden and made inaccessible on
request. Symlink returns "permission denied" then, readlink returns "file
does not exist".
- Setting of stats (set_stat or set_fstat) is disabled - the client will
receive permission denied.
- Permissions for files and dirs are defaulted - the defaults are set on
object initialisation.
