Compiling dropbear for Android
Android has it’s
ADB and it’s great. But for me, it’s not always enough,
especially since it has no way to authenticate the user and there is no
encryption. That’s why I need SSH too. OpenSSH is to big for
embedded systems so I’m using dropbear.
Dropbear is already inside of Android tree, in
directory. Problem is,
Android.mk is configured to only compile SSH
client while I need a server. So there are two solutions -
Android.mk to also compile server or build it externally. In
this article I will show the later approach.
