SSH is not an application/option that is readily available on the
iPhone. That said, there are tools out there now that allow you to
install applications
such OpenSSH, BSD, and a host of other Unix tools. However, those
applications/tools are not supported by Apple and may in fact void your
warranty if installed.

A Google search will surely direct you to current installer tools
that you can
use to put such apps on the the iPhone.

Hey, Matt.

Are you asking about VPN access, about SSL/TLS for IMAP/POP3 and/or
HTTP, about (the lack of support for) Kerberos, about physical
access to the device's operating system and/or interface, putting
on the SIM card, known exploits, historical frequency of
firmware/software updates?

Stanford has group looking at iPhones. Pose your questions, and
I'd be
happy to contribute my knowledge of the device (such as it is).
