Linux SCP Chroot

What's the best way to chroot SCP users on a RHEL system?
Currently, we're running FTP using vsftpd with chrooting confined to /var/ftp/pub.
I'd like to start using SCP but still be able to chroot them to /var/ftp/pub.

Scp is an ssh component it relies on ssh.  Scp is also authenticates user credentials.

Scp will allow to write only where the authenticated user can ssh into and write.

If you are looking for ftps as to no longer exchange login information in plain text.

Scp is a blind protocol, meaning if transferring from remote to local you gave to know ahead of time what is there.
When sending something you have to know there is no such name file named there.

I would install lshell.  It's perfect for restricted ssh/sftp/scp accounts.  Update /etc/shells and configure lshell.conf and you're ready to go.
