Nitrokey partners with Gentoo Foundation to equip developers with USB keys
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 Nitrokey?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.
