GPG Key Transition Statement

Update 06 July 2013: I have again transition to a new GPG key (hopefully for the last time!). Please see my most recent key transition statement and my GPG page for details.

This won’t affect or be interesting to 99% of you, but since it’s considered best practice to make a public statement when these things happens, here goes…

As of today, I have generated a new GnuPG encryption key and will be
transitioning away from my previous one(s).

The old key will continue to be valid until 2011-06-01, but I would
prefer that the new key be used for all future correspondence.  This
message is signed by both keys to certify the transition.

The full “transition statement” is signed by both my previous and new private GnuPG keys for verification.

My new key, 0x96C30A0E95E2C8FE, is available via public key servers. Any communications with me which are private or confidential should be encrypted using this key.

My old key was not lost or compromised but due, in part, to leaving my employer, I decided it would be best to generate new keys.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…
