  • Age v1.0.0 – simple, modern and secure file encryption

    Hardware? I assume if someone was concerned about key access they wouldn't want keys on their filesystem at all but move them into an HSM instead. Since age identities can come from standard input I assume it'd be feasible to put together a workflow there coming from one of the various cli utilities for interacting with keys. There is already a YubiKey specific age plugin [0] getting worked on as well. Currently in beta but looks interesting. Hopefully that will continue to expand to cover other common options. HSM support is pretty important for a modern encryption utility IMO but unfortunately the landscape is pretty all over the place too, so makes sense to just leave it to plugins or as part of a unix flow.

    age also has a notion of plugins, one of which is age-plugin-yubikey (written in Rust, there is also yubage written in Go) which allows you to create an age identity whose private key is stored via PIV.
