QuickSSHD, using the dropbear sshd, is an easy to use SSH server for the Android platform. This allows a computer to connect to the Android device for remote access or file transfer. Similar to "Terminal Emulator" or "adb shell" but over the network using encryption to prevent eavesdropping. An SSH server also provides scp (secure copy) and SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol). There are many clients available for such services but we recommend using the built in ssh/scp/sftp command line tools on Mac and Linux or the PuTTY suite on Windows. Authentication can be done either by password, which is stored encrypted on the phone for your protection, or through the standard SSH shared public key method. Root is optional, non-root users are limited to the app_XX user.
