I am replacing my old DSA-1024 key with a stronger RSA-4096 key. The primary
motivation is to store my key on a Yubikey Nano which doesn't support DSA,
however there is a possibility that the old key has been compromised. Although
I don't have any evidence to suspect this, I certainly haven't been as careful
over the years as I could have.

The old key was:

sec 1024D/1209F481 2010-05-24
Key fingerprint = 093B A359 D87C E901 9AAE ACDF BF99 B090 1209 F481

And the new key is:

sec 4096R/5B640B9F9600F122 2016-02-29
Key fingerprint = 427E 0329 39DB 40F2 9D03 D80F 5B64 0B9F 9600 F122

To fetch the full key from a public key server, you can simply do:

gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-key 5B640B9F9600F122

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

gpg --check-sigs 5B640B9F9600F122

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 5B640B9F9600F122

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 key:

gpg --sign-key 5B640B9F9600F122

Lastly, if you could upload these signatures, i would appreciate it.
You can either send me an e-mail with the new signatures (if you have
a functional MTA on your system):

gpg --armor --export 5B640B9F9600F122 | \
mail -s 'OpenPGP Signatures' philihp+signature@gmail.com

Or you can just upload the signatures to a public keyserver directly:

gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --send-key 5B640B9F9600F122

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

Jolan'tru,
