OpenSSH 8.2 with FIDO/U2F support:

openssh.com/txt/release-8.2

– It adds support for FIDO/U2F hardware authenticators (new public key types "ecdsa-sk" and "ed25519-sk").
– The key signature algorithm "ssh-rsa" was removed due to broken SHA-1.

Thank you to all the #golang core developers for making the language I enjoy the most. Thank you Apache Foundation for all the projects you maintain and develop. Thank you to all the developers working on federated projects and open standards. Thank you to all the free software devs, designers, translators, docs/technical writers, and community managers. Thank you to everyone I forgot who never give up their support for free software.

Thank you @kde for all your work on KDE & Plasma. Thank you @mozilla for Firefox. Thank you to all the kernel hackers for their restless work on the Linux kernel. Thank you to everyone involved working on the GNU tools! Thank you to all the devs working on libraries and the backend, who clearly get to little love!

Easy to use, end-to-end encrypted, peer-to-peer, zero knowledge free/open everyday tools are a prerequisite for human rights and democracy in the digital network age.

We don’t have them.

They should be the norm.

We have a lot of work to do.

We did not suspect that Google is since 2013 not only **a** sponsor, but **the main** sponsor, of the Free Software Foundation Europe @fsfe :
fsfe.org/donate/thankgnus-2013 . Thanks for the hint!

This is like if ExxonMobil was financing Greenpeace.

Just like for the SFC @conservancy above, we removed the #FSFE from the white paper.

And finally I just dissolved in tears.
