Nitrokey is an open hardware encryption device. It is used to provide hardware level encryption to provide one time passwords (OTP), encrypted mass storage, and user authentication.
In early 2019, the Gentoo Foundation partnered with Nitrokey in order to provide Gentoo developers better security. See the official (pending) news release for more information.
