Muddleftpd is a secure, lightweight and flexible FTP server originally written by Beau Kuiper. The server was designed to allow a vast number of configurations; from closely integrating with the system and using PAM to running as a non-root user with per-directory configurations. Yet it also manages to be easy to set up.

The small size of the daemon helps make it very resource efficient, yet it doesn't compromise at all in functionality. In fact it offers a number of extra features to help with security. Most noticable is the fact that unlike most FTP servers currently available the daemon has no need for root privilegdes, therefore even if the daemon is compromised a malicious user will have no elevated access.
