I must, sadly, withdraw my endorsement of yubikey 4 devices (and perhaps all newer yubikeys), as apparently Yubico has replaced all open-source components that made yubikey NEOs so awesome with proprietary closed-source code in Yubikey 4s:

https://github.com/Yubico/ykneo-openpgp/issues/2#issuecomment-218446368

Our team will be evaluating NitroKey Pros as devices to replace yubikeys (https://www.nitrokey.com/) and I will follow up here with the results and general recommendations once our testing is complete.

If you are already using yubikeys, there is no need to replace them, as this will not result in a net improvement in security -- especially if you are only using them for one-time password functionality (press the button to emit a 6-digit code). If you are looking to get a device for storing your private PGP keys, I recommend against using Yubikey 4 devices -- but NEOs are okay, as they still use open-source code.

I strongly believe that all security devices must be powered by libre software and I am saddened at the steps taken by Yubico to make yubikey 4 a black-box platform.

A few months ago when I reviewed the Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition (2016), I wrote: This is the best Linux hardware I have ever seen. The polish, the feel, the look, the components ... everything about it is great.

I just discovered: I was not alone.

Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, has also chosen the Dell XPS 13 Developers Edition as his next laptop. A few weeks ago, Torvalds wrote on his Google+ page that he was looking at the replacement for his old laptop. When I met Torvalds during LinuxCon North America (for a long exclusive interview) I asked if he had selected a worthy one.

The answer is here:

Intéressant ! Une RFC pour IPV6 est disponible sur tous les OS est orienté sur la vie privée. Le concept ? Une adresse temporaire est disponible pour les hôtes. Cette adresse est renouvelé dans le temps comme ça il devient plus compliqué identifier les clients d'une page web publique désirant rester anonyme. https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3041.txt?number=3041
