Using Nitrokey in lxc too


for special reasons I installed Thunderbird in a separate lxc container. The /home dir is mounted from the host.

I can use Nitrokey for signing at host but not from lxc container. I can see the Nitrokey via lsusb in the container too.

I can’t see it via gpg --card-status in the container.

gnupg, libccid, nitrokey-app

All things are installed from Debian bookworm.

I hope someone can help.

Kind regards


Hi @Mechtilde, I am not an expert on lxc, but maybe something like this may help?
