    It is not clear the question you're asking - this doesn't appear to be about security? – SilverlightFox Jun 11 '16 at 6:39

SFTP is subsystem of SSH. When you run sftp command, it internally creates ssh connection for you and run sftp-server on the other side.

SSH (Secure SHell) itself is separately for remote shell. SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) itself separately is for file transfer, as you can make up from the shortcuts.
