We are happy to announce that Arch Linux has partnered with Nitrokey [0]
to equip its staff with free Nitrokey devices. We will use the Nitrokey
devices to store cryptographic keys for signing of git commits, emails
and software packages, GnuPG keys, and SSH accounts.

Thanks to the Nitrokey’s discount and the Arch Linux funds, each Arch
Linux staff is eligible to receive one free Nitrokey Pro 2 or hopefully
soon the new Nitrokey 3. To receive their Nitrokey, eligible staff will
need to register with their @archlinux.org email address at the
dedicated order form. Further instructions about this process will be
sent to our staff.

A Nitrokey Guide will be made available on the Arch Linux Wiki with FAQ
& instructions for integrating Nitrokeys into our workflow.

Nitrokey Pro 2 provides strong reliable hardware encryption. It has open
source firmware, is open hardware and can help you to: sign Git commits;
decrypt emails and files; secure server access; and protect accounts
against identity theft via two-factor authentication (one-time
passwords). Furthermore, the new Nitrokey 3 will support additional
features like FIDO.

Nitrokey is a German IT security company 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). Besides their
hardware products they offer services, consulting and help you with
concept, development and certification of your specific security solutions.

Nitrokey is proud to support Arch Linux in further securing its
infrastructure and contributing to a secure open source Linux ecosystem.
