The design of scalable and secure data transfer service, Bistro, for digital government data collection application is discussed. The systems approach is to introduce intermediate hosts, bistros, which allow replacement of a traditionally synchronized client push approach with a nonsynchronized combination of client-push and server-pull approach. This in turn allows spreading of the workload on the destination server and the network over time. Bistro's design allows for a gradual deployment and experimentation over the internet by simply downloading Bistro server software and installing it on public servers.
