GPG/OpenPGP Key Transition Statement
As time marches on, and computers grow ever more powerful, it's clear that it's possible for well-funded organizations to compromise my old GPG/OpenPGP key.
I'm transitioning my GPG/OpenPGP key from an old 1024-bit DSA key to a new 4096-bit RSA key.
- The old key will continue to be valid for one year.
- I prefer all new correspondence to be encrypted with the new key.
- I would like this new key to be re-integrated into the web of trust.
The Key Transition Statement below is signed by both keys to certify the transition.
