  • GitHub repo YubiKey-Guide

    Guide to using YubiKey for GPG and SSH

    Project mention: Unlock yubikey nfc with iphone? | | 2021-12-01

    Try setting up something like Dropbear SSH and storing your PGP key for SSH on the YubiKey itself. Wasn't able to track down a OpenSSH version of this tutorial, but if you were to get that working, you could use the YubiKey's FIDO functionality as your SSH key, making your setup even easier.

  • GitHub repo x11docker

    Run GUI applications and desktops in docker and podman containers. Focus on security.

    Project mention: Ask HN: Rewrite Project or Abandon It? | | 2021-01-05

    Hi people,

    I need your advice and opinion.

    I have a project on GitHub that I wasn't updating for a while:

    And it still works kinda OK for me, but technically it's a hard to maintain gibberish and I'm thinking about rewriting it in a statically compiled language, add unit testing and be able to incorporate different advanced features without making myself and others cry.

    HOWEVER: I doubt this makes sense and fear to just lose time on it.

    Could you please help me with a decision:

    If you think it's worth rewriting, add a GitHub star on

    If you think it's a pile of shite and it should die, no problem, just ignore it :)

    It already has 954 stars for now and if number of stars goes 1k+ this month, I'll rewrite it. If not, it would be a sign it's a [c/t]rap and I need to run away and forget ;)


  • GitHub repo ssb

  • GitHub repo docker-sshd

    Minimal Alpine Linux Docker image with sshd exposed and rsync installed

    Project mention: Is it possible to enable SSH inside a Docker container? | | 2021-01-11
  • GitHub repo ubuntu-sshd

    Dockerized Ubuntu SSH service

    Project mention: Container restarts constantly after running docker-compose up, but not after docker run | | 2021-01-18

    Ah then you probably want to run the ssh daemon as your command line in the dockerfile instead of running it in the background as a service. You probably won't need stdin_open since that just lets you feed input to it from the shell. Here's an example of a ssh daemon for ubuntu:

  • GitHub repo addon-ssh

    SSH & Web Terminal - Home Assistant Community Add-ons

    Project mention: Jumping through hoops | | 2021-02-04

    Probably easier to use the SSH & Web addon since Terminal was depreciated. It should also be in the Supervisor tab where you found Terminal. It's the replacement for Terminal and does the same things.

    Project mention: 'include' statement directive keyword is missing from OpenSSL_8.1p1 | | 2021-09-26

    Was working on the heavy annotation of OpenSSH configuration items and a bit midway into macOS-specific documentation, I've noticed that the `include` statement keyword is NOT being supported in ONLY the macOS-specific OpenSSH (`sshd`) server.
