Why ?
In a centralized world, having a personnal server is not only for the developpers, and stay connected with it's server is important, especially as phones are increasingly being used as smart-computers. All this to say that we need an SSH client for our FirefoxOS phones.
Wished features

    Maybe mosh-client implentation (It's for mobile device, remember)

    RFC 4252, The Secure Shell (SSH) Authentication Protocol

Handicaps

    SSH uses cryptology protocols that may have not been implemented in JS before.

Needs / required

    Diffie-Hellman

    RSA Key Exchange

Suggestions

    it could be good to look at the side of FireSSH, a Firefox addon for Firefox (desktop), maybe fork it ?
