YubiKey GPG for git SSH and commit signing

So you want to be super secure and awesome with a GitHub verified badge to your name? Read on!

The below has been tested and verified with a new 'Yubico YubiKey 5c NFC', note that FIPS versions don't seem to support SSH usage, and e.g. the BIO is missing support for several standards).


The idea is you end up with a YubiKey 5 with:

  • a signing key for commit signing
  • an authorization key for SSH authentication

Sync an entire GitHub org using `gh`. It clones missing repo's first, then runs a pull. Pull might fail if you have changes in your tree.
gh repo list $ORG_NAME_HERE --limit 1000 | while read -r repo _; do
gh repo clone "$repo" "$repo" --
git -C "$repo" pull

A Cloud Engineer's Workspace

Hi, I'm a cloud engineer, spending most of my time in AWS with the occasional excursion into O365/Azure.

This is a collection of tools, ways of working and thoughts to keep stuff centralized for myself. Perhaps it can be useful to you!

I'm not a commandline junky so apologies for all the clickedy tools in this list!

  • VS Code: my IDE of choice, see my settings [here]
  • zsh
  • oh-my-zsh (agnoster, Solarized Dark, git npm yarn aws, eval "$(direnv hook zsh)")
  • direnv (
