OFTP2 (Odette File Transfer Protocol) is an Internet-based communication protocol which has been standardized by the Odette organization (Organization for Data Exchange by Tele-Transmission in Europe) for use across the global automotive industry. OFTP2 uses a combination of Secure Socket Layers (SSL), data encryption and digital certificates to ensure that business documents are exchanged securely. File compression techniques and check point restart capabilities allow large files to be exchanged quickly between business partners.
