Scp (Secure Copy) is a command line tool to copy or transfer files across hosts. It uses the same kind of security mechanism like the ssh program. Infact it uses an ssh connection in the background to perform the file transfer. scp refers both to the "protocol" that defines how secure copy should work and the "program" (command) which is installed as a part of OpenSSH suite of tools.
