OpenPGP Key Transition Statement for Hanno 'Rince' Wagner

I have created a new OpenPGP key and will be transitioning away from
my old key. The old key has not been compromised and will continue to
be valid for some time, but I prefer all future correspondence to be
encrypted to the new key, and will be making signatures with the new
key going forward.

I would like this new key to be re-integrated into the web of trust.
This message is signed by both keys to certify the transition. My new
and old keys are signed by each other. 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 re-authenticating me.

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

pub 1024D/9B7E8785 2012-02-13 [expires: 2017-02-11]
Key fingerprint = 9B29 43C1 E851 EB1F 5EE1 399E 002E CB48 9B7E 8785

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

pub 3744R/4CF2D85A 2014-12-19 [expires: 2024-12-16]
Key fingerprint = A757 23A1 76CD E346 0449 956A 7C31 92F1 4CF2 D85A

The entire key may be downloaded from:

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

gpg --keyserver --recv-key 4cf2d85a

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

gpg --check-sigs 4cf2d85a

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

gpg --sign-key 4cf2d85a

You can upload your signatures to a public keyserver directly:

gpg --keyserver --send-key 4cf2d85a

Or email (possibly encrypted) the output from:

gpg --armor --export 4cf2d85a

If you'd like any further verification or have any questions about the
transition please contact me directly.

To verify the integrity of this statement:

wget -q -O-|gpg --verify

Version: GnuPG v1.4.12 (GNU/Linux)

Vor mehr als 15 Jahren habe ich mir - damals noch ausschließlich unter Windows - den ersten eigenen PGP-Key erstellt. Einige Jahre später habe ich diesen alten Schlüssel dann für alle praktischen Zwecke durch einen neuen Key ersetzt. Hanno hat mich jetzt
