    a different system needs access to data - advice on what to use and how to secure it?

    I have a system written in PHP and MySQL. The data entry is protected with login and SSL pages.

    How can I make a subset of the data available for download to a system that will pull the data? In other words, I have a data another system needs to download. How can I make it available for that other system to get automatically without human intervention every time.

    Thanks in advance!

    You are basically talking about implementing a web service. You can look into what is already available (check pear.php.net). Or you can craft your own, in which case you approuch just as you would any web interface. The other computer must login to prove it is the computer you expect, enable SSL to keep the data stream protected. The only change would be the data that you output. Instead of providing an HTML page you'll provide the raw data.
