Apple is also donating $10 million, as well as any damages obtained from lawsuit, to orgs like Citizen Lab that helped expose NSO activity. "Apple will also support the accomplished researchers at the Citizen Lab with pro-bono technical, threat intelligence, and engineering" help

This is a good writeup of the SSH signatures that @sebkinne added to OpenSSH a couple of years ago.

The only thing that I'd add is that all of this works with keys held on FIDO hardware tokens too (much harder to steal)
