Question PureFTP + TLS / or SFTP

Hello all,

I am running OpenBSD 4.2 /w Generic Kernel.

I am wondering if someone can assist with some thoughts regarding TLS or SFTP security?

Currently I am running PureFTP w/ SQL for the user accounts. I am interested in implementing a secure method (or both) as a secondary method for connecting. Existing users will need to be usable.

I have a few questions:

1. What are the key differences between using TLS and SFTP?

2. Does PureFTPd have the ability to support SFTP?

3. Will SFTP be compatible with the SQL database for authentication?

4. Does anyone have any nice walk-throughs regarding this?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!
