Transitioning to a new GnuPG key

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1,SHA512

Hi everyone,

I'm migrating to a new 4096-bit GPG key from my old 1024-bit key. This
is the notice to inform you about that.

The old key will continue to be valid for some time, but i prefer all
future correspondence to come to the new one.  I would also like this
new key to be re-integrated into the web of trust.  This message is
signed by both keys to certify the transition.[1]

The old key was:

pub   1024D/762E5E74 2006-11-25
      Key fingerprint = 1E00 4679 77E4 F8EE 2E4B  56F2 1F2F 8410 762E 5E74

And the new key is:

pub   4096R/E74FA4B0 2010-04-13
      Key fingerprint = F682 CDCC 39DC 0FEA E116  20B6 C746 CFA9 E74F A4B0

To fetch my new key from a public key server, you can simply do:

  gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-key E74FA4B0

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

  gpg --check-sigs E74FA4B0

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 E74FA4B0

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 E74FA4B0

Lastly, if you could upload these signatures, I would appreciate it.
Please could you just upload the signatures to a public keyserver directly:

  gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --send-key E74FA4B0
  gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --send-key E74FA4B0

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

Thanks
Ashish SHUKLA
