she1 is very smart and very curious.

Secure Sockets Layer is what it says, a secure socket, on all things it works on; ftp, ssh, cvs, whatever.  

https is the secure socket for just the http protocol.

They both use encryption with keys, not necessarily the cited definitions define them, there are many forms of encryption/decryption used, public/private keys can be passwords, pass phrases, etc..

When a browser wants a secure ftp download or upload, http has to call ftps and both call ssl to work.

ssl is the underlying technology and software protocol.
