Subject: [gentoo-announce] Nitrokey partners with Gentoo Foundation to equip developers with USB keys
Date: Wed, 17 Apr 2019 16:47:12
The Gentoo Foundation[1] has partnered with Nitrokey[2] to equip all 
Gentoo developers with free Nitrokey Pro 2[3] devices. Gentoo
developers will use the Nitrokey devices to store cryptographic keys
for signing of git commits and software packages, GnuPG keys, and SSH 

Thanks to the Gentoo Foundation and NitrokeyĆ¢s discount, each Gentoo
developer is eligible to receive one free Nitrokey Pro 2. To receive
their Nitrokey, developers will need to register with their
email address at the dedicated order form [4].

A Nitrokey Pro 2 Guide[5] is available on the Gentoo Wiki with FAQ &
instructions for integrating Nitrokeys into developer workflow.


"Nitrokey Pro 2"[3] has strong reliable hardware encryption, thanks to
open source. It can help you to: sign Git commits; encrypt emails and 
files; secure server access; and protect accounts against identity
theft via two-factor authentication (one-time passwords).


Gentoo Linux[7] is a free, source-based, rolling release meta
distribution that features a high degree of flexibility and high
performance. It empowers you to make your computer work for you, and 
offers a variety of choices at all levels of system configuration.

As a community, Gentoo consists of approximately two hundred developers
and over fifty thousand users globally.

The Gentoo Foundation[1] supports the development of Gentoo, protects
Gentoo's intellectual property, and oversees adherence to Gentoo's
Social Contract.


Nitrokey[2] is a German IT security startup committed to open source
hardware and software. Nitrokey develops and produces USB keys for data
encryption, email encryption (PGP/GPG, S/MIME), and secure account
logins (SSH, two-factor authentication via OTP and FIDO).

Nitrokey is proud to support the Gentoo Foundation in further securing
the Gentoo infrastructure and contributing to a secure open source
Linux ecosystem.
