How to do SCP from one EC2 Instance to another EC2 Instance

Nowadays, many websites are being hosted on cloud (Amazon Web Services) instead of traditional dedicated/shared Linux servers. Programmers who are using "scp" command to copy data from one Linux server to other Linux server are now facing issues to use same "scp" command for two ec2 instances/servers of AWS. The main reason behind this is, while using "scp" command, it asks for password of the server where the data is being copied and with ec2 instances of AWS, we normally have .ppk files and not a password.
