Sorry for the weird title but I seriously need to know,
If I bought a raspberry pi, a wifi dongle and an sd card and install kali linux on it, would I be able to SSH into it from my phone so I have a terminal on my phone?
Sorry for my bad english.
If you can download and install an SSH client for your phone then sure. But then one would wonder what exactly you could do at that point.
There are plenty of options for all major Mobile OS's.
I have used JuiceSSH and for android and it works well
The SSH Client for Windows Moible:
And surely there is something for IOS
Most of the clients work about the same, you enter your IP address of your Raspberry Pi, then enter the username and password in the required fields.
Why not take the total gui interface??
Use this to make vnc server in rpi: sudo apt-get install realvnc-vnc-server
use raspAP available in github to create hotspot from pi.
use vnc viewer available in play store to access gui.
