Send large files quickly and securely with FileSender

Known NREN FileSender installations (April 2023)According to the FileSender deployment map updated in April 2023, there are 35 countries in the world in which National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) provide a FileSender service to their national R&E communities.

At the regional level the FileSender service is offered by GÉANT in Europe, RedCLARA in Latin America and UbuntuNet Alliance in South and East Africa. At the institutional level there are known FileSender services offered by universities of Austria, Cyprus, Greece, Japan and Spain.

FileSender is open source software to deliver a service for easy and secure transfer of large files through a trusted intermediary, often the NREN. The sender has full control over who receives and can access the files (through authentication of users) and for which period of time – as it should be. With privacy, data security and digital sovereignty high on the agenda of both organizations and individuals, the FileSender open source web-application provides a secure, trustworthy and transparent way for sharing large files.

In the Republic of Moldova the FileSender service is implemented by RENAM to support research and education institutions. Access to FileSender is enabled using federated user authentication process. RENAM provides to all Moldovan research and education institutions the necessary assistance in implementation of federated access to services and in becoming a member of the LEAF (MoLdovan ResEarch and EducAtion Identity Federation).
