Hi All,

I would like to buy a hardware keyring to store my futur subkey and for
beter security.
I haven't got keys now, but with my futur email address and server I would
like to use more GPG system. For sign all my outgoing mail, to connect
though my ssh server, maybe to encrypt file, etc...

I found a lot of this but It's hard to choose witch one.
Here my choice, please add yours:

- OpenPGP Card <http://www.g10code.de/p-card.html>: cheap, secure, need a
smartcard reader (or USB Key). Can't use on smartphone but easily store in
a wallet. And of course it's Open Hardware. Can use Smartcard Pageant for
Windows <http://smartcard-auth.de/ssh-en.html>
- Yubikey Neo
<https://www.yubico.com/products/yubikey-hardware/yubikey-neo/>: multiple
usage, NFC (for smartphone) and U2F, NOT OPEN SOURCE (and security breach
- FST-01 <http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/FST-01>: Can be entropy device (
NeuG <http://www.gniibe.org/memo/development/gnuk/rng/neug>), can be
upgraded (need ST-LINK/V2), Only one enclosure with no attach. And Open
Source Too
- NitroKey <https://www.nitrokey.com/>: Best of all I think but not
availaible yet

I want to use my device at work, at home and on travel with my netbook. If
I can, I would like to use it with my smartphone but I can live without. I
love OpenSource and OpenHardware, I think it's the futur for better device
and transparency. But I'm not a developper so I trust people who read the

So, what's your advice about hardware keyring ?? Did you know other ??
What's your keyring ???
Thanks for reply
