Replacing/updating my PGP key

I’ve decided that my PGP key could use some updating after 9 years. I have created a new (longer) and better-hashed PGP key. Now using 4096 bits of RSA, and using sha2 from now on 😉

And the new key is:

pub 4096R/C4F69BD2 2009-05-11 [expires: 2019-05-09]
Key fingerprint = 6AFC 0D83 5346 C729 6754 113F D867 4D8F C4F6 9BD2

I have placed the key on my server: http://www.maniac.nl/maniac.gpg and uploaded it to the pgp keyserver(s).

I have also created a transition document, which is signed by my old and new keys, located on http://www.maniac.nl/key-transition.txt. If you have signed my old key (0x357D2178) please consider re-signing my new key after verifying the signatures on this document.

If you prefer to meet me face-to-face for a key verification, that shouldn’t be too hard to arrange. I’ll try to keep some keyslips on my at all times.

Update 2009/05/18: The file was signed first with my old key, and the result was signed with my new key. This gave some problems, and the file is now replaced by a new version which is signed by both keys simultaniously. This should verify correctly.
