New openPGP key

—–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—–
Hash: SHA1

I have set up a new PGP key, and will be transitioning away from my old one which will expire soon.
At the time I had created the old one I chose properties which are no longer recommended for good security.

Due to nature of web of trust, I would appreciate signatures on my new key, provided that your signing policy
permits to do so without reauthenticating me.

The old key is:
pub 1024D/FA33C4FE 2009-04-22 [expires: 2014-07-31]
Key fingerprint = 2208 BB97 8E11 BA20 4989 2152 B83F 4F6A FA33 C4FE

The new key is:

To fetch the new key from a public key server:
gpg –keyserver pgp.mit.edu –recv-key 43004D09665FD573

To validate that the new key is signed with my old key:
gpg –check-sigs 665FD573

Upload the signatures to a public keyserver directly:
gpg –sign-key 665FD573
gpg –keyserver pgp.mit.edu –send-key 665FD573

Alternatively, you can also download key, sign it, export to ASCII and send it to me.
gpg –import-key 665FD573.asc
gpg –sign-key 665FD573
gpg –armor –export 665FD573 > 665FD573-signed.asc

Twitter

I’ve added a wordpress plugin to post my tweets as blog posts here. Kinda keeps everything in one place, especially as I’m tweeting more than I have done in previous years. Makes this page quite busy though, not sure if I like it.
