Use your NitroKey for sudo authentication on remote hosts
Sometimes it feels odd to type passwords for sudo authentication on remote hosts. It would be much more comfortable to just use your hardware key like a Nitrokey Start or Nitrokey Pro. The following setup has been tested with a NitroKey Pro 2 and NitroKey Start.
The trick is to forward the gpg agent from your local machine, where you plug your hardware key to your remote host via ssh socket forwarding. Then we can use the key in our NitroKey to decrypt and authenticate on the remote host.
If you use an ssh-agent and this setup to login to your remote servers and get root access there, the same can be done by an attacker who succeeds to own your local machine. So an attacker getting access to your laptop with your user privileges can just wait until you plugin your Hardware Key and unlock it. Then they can lo
