Transitioning to a new key

Below you will find my OpenPGP Key Transition notice signaling my intention to migrate from my current key (0x1CD3E3D8) to my new one (0xFEEEFA8F). Note that it is very likely that the software used on this website will render the notice in such a way as to invalidate the signature below. Instead please see the plain text version here to do proper validation against or check out my About Me page for full details.

With my current OpenPGP key set to expire on January 5th of the new year, I have decided that now is a good time to begin my transition to a new key.

The old key will continue to be valid for a little while, but I would prefer for all future correspondence to come to the new one. I would also like this new key to be re-integrated into the web of trust. This message is signed by both keys to certify the transition.

The old key was:

pub 2048R/0x1CD3E3D8 2012-01-06
Key fingerprint: 96ED 6B13 10B1 69C1 8299 693C 2921 6D80 1CD3 E3D8

And the new key is:

pub 4096R/0xFEEEFA8F 2013-12-16
Key fingerprint: D1B0 2237 5BA9 E6E0 235E FF75 8AA0 A0CE FEEE FA8F

To fetch my new key from a public key server, you can do:

gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key FEEEFA8F

If you already know my old key, you can now verify that the new key is signed by the old one:

gpg --check-sigs FEEEFA8F

If you don't already know my old key, or you just want to be double extra paranoid, you can check the fingerprint against the one above:

gpg --fingerprint FEEEFA8F

If you are satisfied that you've got the right key, and the UIDs match what you expect, I'd appreciate it if you would sign my new key:

gpg --sign-key FEEEFA8F

Lastly, if you could upload these signatures, I would really appreciate it. You can just upload the signatures to a public keyserver directly:

gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --send-key FEEEFA8F

Please let me know if there is any trouble, and sorry for the inconvenience.
