Russell Standish : ange-ftp-over-ssh

"GNU emacs has a wonderful remote file editing facility called Ange ftp. However, because it uses ftp as its file transport agent, passwords are transmitted as plain text which can be snooped by the unscrupulous ``bad guys'' out there in cyberspace. This package is a ``drop in replacement'' for the ftp client that instead redirects the file transfers over ssh, which allows for connections without the need for plain text passwords to be transmitted."
