Nitrokey 3 - RC Firmware Release
We are happy to announce that a new firmware for the Nitrokey 3 is now available. The version 1.3RC1 is a release candidate and will not be delivered via the automatic update with pynitrokey. Since many things are changing with this version we decided to release a release candidate first to make sure there are no problems. We expect to release a version 1.3 within the next days, which will be delivered automatically with pynitrokey. Until then, you have to download the current version via Github and install it manually with pynitrokey, just like for the alpha firmware.
Most important changes:
- The Secrets-app is now enabled and available. Currently you can already use it for One-Time-Passwords (OTPs). This will be extended step by step with password safe functions.
- Improvement of data security for the Nitrokey 3A Mini
- Numerous bugs especially in communication (CCID, CTAP) have been fixed
- Improvements in FIDO2-compatibility
More details can be found in the changelog inside the Nitrokey 3 firmware repository.
A new pynitrokey version will follow the next days. The current version sometimes doesn't wait long enough at the end of the update and reports an error even though everything is fine. Please remember to never unplug your Nitrokey 3 while the LED is still active.
