Secure Communications

I digitally sign my email messages using GNU Privacy Guard. Here is the information on my current key used for Carleton email (my other accounts use other keys). Here is its fingerprint:

  pub   4096R/AD43281F 2016-07-25 [expires: 2018-07-25]
       Key fingerprint = 7C9B DCE9 50DA 3685 111D  9960 6AD0 98A5 AD43 281F
  sub   4096R/A0156C2A 2016-07-25 [expires: 2018-07-25]
You can also retrieve this key from any of the standard PGP key servers.

While I take reasonable precautions to keep this key secure, there is always a chance that it could be compromised, especially since I use it every day. Thus, if you are really concerned about securely communicating with me, let me know through this key set and we can make other arrangements.

Below are keys I have used in the past:
