GnuPG key transition statement

I am transitioning GPG keys from my old 4096-bit RSA key to a new 4096-bit RSA key. The old key will continue to be valid for some time, but I prefer all new correspondance to be encrypted in the new key, and will be making all signatures going forward with the new key.

Here is my transition statement

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

I am transitioning GPG keys from my old 4096-bit RSA key to a new
4096-bit RSA key. The old key will continue to be valid for some time,
but I prefer all new correspondance to be encrypted in the new key,
and will be making all signatures going forward with the new key.

This transition document is signed with both keys to validate the
transition.

If you have signed my old key, I would appreciate signatures on my new
key as well, provided that your signing policy permits that without
reauthenticating me.

The old key, which I am transitional away from, is:

  pub   rsa4096 2013-02-23 [SC] [expires: 2018-02-22]
      Key fingerprint = 89C9 5CF0 871D 6EC1 0A3F  ECD9 741E 93C2 2741 5CF9

The new key, to which I am transitioning, is:

  pub   rsa4096 2018-02-17 [SC] [expires: 2021-02-16]
      Key fingerprint = 65D0 A6E4 6387 883E C3B5  E78C D67A 997E FEA3 D7C1

To fetch the full new key from a public key server using GnuPG, run:

  gpg --recv-keys D67A997EFEA3D7C1

If you have already validated my old key, you can then validate that
the new key is signed by my old key:

  gpg --check-sigs D67A997EFEA3D7C1

If you then want to sign my new key, a simple and safe way to do that
is by using caff (shipped in Debian as part of the "signing-party"
package) as follows:

  caff D67A997EFEA3D7C1

Find contact details at https://nblock.org/about if you have any
questions about this document or this transition.
