Nitrokey and Arch Linux have partnered to equip all Arch Linux developers with free Nitrokey devices to increase their security. Arch Linux developers will use the Nitrokey Pro 2 and Nitrokey Start devices to securely store cryptographic keys for signing of git commits and software packages, GnuPG keys, and SSH accounts.
Thanks to Arch Linux and Nitrokey’s discount, each Arch Linux developer is eligible to receive one free Nitrokey Pro 2 or Nitrokey Start. To receive their Nitrokey, developers need to register with their @archlinux.org email address at the dedicated order form.
This makes Arch Linux, along with The Linux Foundation and Gentoo Linux, another Linux organization that has chosen Nitrokey. Nitrokey is proud to support Arch Linux in further securing their infrastructure and contributing to a secure open source Linux ecosystem.
About Arch Linux
Arch Linux is an independently developed, x86-64 general-purpose GNU/Linux distribution that strives to provide the latest stable versions of most software by following a rolling-release model. The default installation is a minimal base system, configured by the user to only add what is purposely required.
About Nitrokey Pro 2 and Start
Nitrokey Pro 2 and Nitrokey Start have strong reliable hardware encryption, thanks to open source. It can help you to: sign git commits; encrypt emails and files; secure server access. Nitrokey Pro 2 is equipped with a secure, physical smart card and protects accounts against identity theft via two-factor authentication (one-time passwords). Instead of a smart card, Nitrokey Start has a fully open source implementation.
