I don't agree with the statement:



An SSL/TLS connection has more integrity, in the networking sense, because the encryption runs end to end from program to program; with SSH, data is routed in the clear on the client and server machines from separate programs to the SSH software. SSH is thus slightly less secure (but not by much).


If I am using SSH's sftp program as a client or server, where is it that any data is passed in the clear? There is not another program that SSH must talk to, it does all the work itself.
