For a number of reasons, I’ve recently set up a new OpenPGP key, and will be transitioning away from my old one.
The old key will continue to be valid for some time, but I prefer all future correspondence to come to the new one. I would also like this new key to be re-integrated into the web of trust. This message is signed by both keys to certify the transition.
The old key was:
pub 1024D/33AEDA47 2008-02-19 Key fingerprint = 7444 BFF0 7D4D ABDB A073 2395 7BCE 14BC 33AE DA47
And the new key is:
pub 4096R/A9832EBB 2011-01-28 Key fingerprint = 634C A485 0772 6F0A E3E9 5FE1 54A2 7BAD A983 2EBB
To fetch the full key, you can get it with:
wget -q -O- http://ernstfamily.ch/jonathan/gpg/jernst.gpg | gpg --import -
Or, to fetch my new key from a public key server, you can simply do:
gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-key A9832EBB
If you already know my old key, you can now verify that the new key is signed by the old one:
gpg --check-sigs A9832EBB
If you don’t already know my old key, or you just want to be extra paranoid, you can check the fingerprint against the one above:
gpg --fingerprint A9832EBB
If you are satisfied that you’ve got the right key, and the UIDs match what you expect, I’d appreciate it if you would sign my key:
gpg --sign-key A9832EBB
Lastly, if you could upload these signatures, I would appreciate it.
You can either send me an e-mail with the new signatures (if you have a functional MTA on your system):
gpg --armor --export A9832EBB | mail -s 'OpenPGP Signatures' firstname.lastname@example.org
Or you can just upload the signatures to a public keyserver directly:
gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --send-key A9832EBB
Please let me know if there is any trouble, and sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks and best regards.
