What is Nitrokey?
Nitrokey is an USB key to enable highly secure encryption and signing of emails and data, as well as login to the Web, networks and computers. Other than ordinary software solutions, the secret keys are always stored securely inside the Nitrokey. Their extraction is impossible which makes Nitrokey immune to computer viruses and Trojan horses. The user-chosen PIN and the tamper-proof smart card protect in case of loss and theft. Hardware and software are both available as Open Source to allow verifying the security and integration with other applications.

Said about Nitrokey as an alternative
This is actually hardware, and it seems to be as secure as yubikey
Positive comment • almost 3 years ago • as an alternative to YubiKey
State of the art open source crypto. Yubikey lost NFC support anyway so there is no benefit anymore
Positive comment • almost 5 years ago • as an alternative to YubiKey
This is the only option listed that is actually a hardware token like Yubikey and also has a critical mass of users and support. Open Source is a plus also.
