SFTP Chroot

Restrict users so that they cannot use SSH and access only their home directory.

Two things to consider before we get off the ground:
  1. FTP passwords are transmitted un-encrypted. It is not safe to use ftp in public wireless networks.
  2. SFTP requries shell access and allows your user to access files in /etc, /sbin or /bin directory.
A chroot on Unix operating systems is an operation that changes the apparent root directory for the current running process and its children. A program that is run in such a modified environment cannot name (and therefore normally not access) files outside the designated directory tree. The term “chroot” may refer to the chroot(2) system call or the chroot(8) wrapper program. The modified environment is called a “chroot jail”. From Wikipedia.
As shared hosting administrator, you may want to give SFTP access to user whom you do not completely trust. Preventing users from moving round the filesystem is a must for many web hosting servers. SFTP chroot plugin is used for preventing users from seeing each other and viewing sensitive information.
