@koyu I use it for PGP and SSH, too. I wish u2f was supported more widely

@julian @koyu How does it work with PGP? What's the workflow? I should probably do this someday.

@aidalgol @koyu GnuPG can use it like any smartcard. Basically, when you use it for PGP, you have to stick it into your PC or hold it next to your NFC reader and then enter your PIN or touch the button, depending on how you configure your key. Since you can use PGP for authentication, you can use it for passwordless SSH, too.
See here for a guide:

@skootthecat it's a hardware security key meant for storing very sensitive data
