Wow! More than 1K of you have started to follow our journey on Mastodon! 🎉

Thank you so much! We've got a surprise for you! Tell us your story - what Nitrokey means to you and include a pic or video if you like! 🙂

Well, I have pre-ordered 2x Nitrokey 3A NFC and they didn't arrive yet, but I am very excited about them and can't wait to learn about and use them.

@tpheine Thank you! We're getting there soon. Stay tuned. 🙂


I have been using a Nitrokey Start for several months now and it's the best investement I ever did to store my keys! 💶 After a crashed system, restoring was a breeze, up and running in minutes! 🎆

Using the Nitrokey for GPG signing, GPG encryption, and SSH authentication. That's only possible because it works with existing standards and even better, it's FOSS!

All of this happens on #Alpine #Linux and I documented my experience and install guide on my blog:

@dylanvanassche @nitrokey Being able to use the #nitrokey for gpg and ssh authentication was the main motivation for adding Gcr prompter support early to #phosh

@agx @nitrokey

Yeah the Gcr prompter in #Phosh is really great! The #nitrokey even works on the @purism #Librem5 and the @PINE64 #PinePhone thanks to this!

@dylanvanassche @nitrokey Oh I need a guide for that SSH authentication you're talking about. So far I've been a happy Nitrokey user (also on #AlpineLinux of course), but if there are more ways to use it then I'm definitely interested!

@bart @nitrokey

It's in the blog post :)
Basically, you need to set GPG as an SSH agent and it works pretty nice! The blog post assumes you use #GNOME pinentry to enter your password, but this can be replaced of course with other variants like #KDE
