Is Jail Break need on my iPad Mini to SSH?
In short, yes, because you'll be executing non-Apple approved commands as root, which requires that you be jailbroken to access root.

Without root access, your options are limited in what you can do. In general, yes, you can SSH into a stock iPad, but when users tend to refer to SSH on an iPad, it's more towards FTP rather than for communication purposes in the sense that SSH is supposed to be.
You dont need Jail Break to SSH from your iOS device to a remote server. You can use an app that implements SSH to execute remotely.
That's what I'm saying. The sense of SSH in the jailbreak community revolves around FTP, not remote execution or for a secure shell data communication. One is for executing remotely from a portable device, the other is for transferring and rooting through the iOS for file transfers usually through a GUI like WinSCP or CyberDuck. For actual communication like using PuTTy, you won't need to jailbreak your device if you're executing strictly remote commands.
