Email Signing / Encryption Policy

My policy is to sign / encrypt outgoing email whenever possible, and to prefer signed / encrypted email from other people. This applies to all email, not just sensitive messages: otherwise an encrypted message is just a flag to an attacker saying "I'm important!"

If you have the capability of doing so, please sign / encrypt all email you send me. If you're new to the concept of encrypted email, please see http://www.gnupg.org/gph/en/manual.html.

I currently have two GPG keys in active use.

0x64011A8B

This key has been in use for a long time and is tightly bound into the Web Of Trust, but it was created back at a time when 1024-bit keys were considered highly secure. I'm phasing this key out in favor of the newer key below.

My newer key. Please use this in preference to the older key above.
