  12. <p>
  13. When you <a href="http://www.fsfe.org/join">join the Fellowship</a>, you
  14. will automatically receive two letters: One containing your
  15. personalised Fellowship card, a smart card containing state-of-the-art
  16. hardware encryption, and another one containing administrative
  17. information for the Fellowship card.
  18. </p>
  19. </div>
  20. <h2>Personalised for you</h2>
  21. <p>The Fellowship smart card has a unique design that is personalised for you
  22. with your name and fellowship number. There are three OpenPGP subkeys on the
  23. smart card:</p>
  24. <ul>
  25. <li>A signature subkey, used to sign email, documents and other data.</li>
  26. <li>An encryption subkey, used to decrypt incoming data and mail.</li>
  27. <li>An authentication subkey, not used for normal GnuPG operation, which allows
  28. other tools like SSH or PAM modules to use the Fellowship card for
  29. authentication and (remote) logins.</li>
  30. </ul>
  31. <h2>Features</h2>
  32. <p>The Fellowship card is a so-called "smart card" and requires a smart card
  33. reader for your computer. Using your Fellowship card in combination with a
  34. smart card reader, you can: </p>
  35. <ul>
  36. <li>Sign and encrypt your email.</li>
  37. <li>Use your Fellowship card for single sign-on at your computer.</li>
  38. <li>Log in remotely on your machines using SSH. Because the key is stored
  39. in hardware and can never leave the card, you can even do this safely from
  40. a potentially insecure machine.</li>
  41. <li>Use the Fellowship card only for subkeys of your normal GPG key, as
  42. described in the <a
  43. href="http://www.gnupg.org/howtos/card-howto/en/smartcard-howto.html">GnuPG
  44. Smartcard Howto</a> under <a
  45. href="http://www.gnupg.org/howtos/card-howto/en/ch05.html">Advanced
  46. Features</a> or the <a href="http://wiki.fsfe.org/Card_howtos">howtos in
  47. our wiki</a>. Using your Fellowship card with subkeys is recommended.</li>
  48. </ul>
  49. <h2>Use your imagination</h2>
  50. <p>The Fellowship card is indeed a very flexible token that can be used for
  51. many things -- use your imagination and blog about it.</p>
