GnuPG key rollover

Posted on September 17, 2015

My current PGP key expires at the end of the year. Accordingly, I did a key rollover tonight and generated new keys. The comms page has more details; the key ID is below. The new key has been signed by the old key as well as a new identity key that I’ll be using to sign new keys going forward.

The key isn’t on keybase yet; putting the new key on keybase will require a complete reset of the account. I ran into some issues with my keybase client that look like issues with the Go openpgp package; I haven’t debugged far enough to get a good bug report done, but that will also delay submitting the key.

For completeness, here’s the new fingerprint:
