If you want to use encryption when sending me mail, use a format compatible with GnuPG 1.0.6. I installed the IDEA module, so PGP 2.6.x encryption should work too. You can also use recent versions of PGP.

If you want to use PGP encryption, you'll need my PGP public
key. Due to all that confusion about different versions and algorithms
I created two keys, one for RSA and one for
DSA/DSS/DH. The RSA key has since been signed with some
DSS/DH keys. If you need a RSA only key, it's here.
Use whichever key works best for you.
NOTE: There is a major bug in PGP versions 5.0 to 6.5.7 which causes them to accept unauthorized ADKs (Additional Decryption Keys) that have been added to unsigned blocks in keys of a certain format. The description of that bug is here. If you run one of these PGP versions, you should consider upgrading to version 6.5.8 or later or, better yet, GnuPG. None of my keys should contain any sort of ADK. If you have a version of one of my public keys that contains ADKs, it has been tampered with.
To allow you to get a current version of my keys, I set up an auto-responder at email@example.com.
M. Drew Streib analyzes the key ring of the us.pgp.net keyserver on a monthly
basis. He uses the "mean shortest distance" (MSD) from all keys in the
largest strongly connected set of public keys as a relative measure of

I wrote two Perl programs that display some results based on these analyses.
After receiving a key fingerprint for certification, you'll want to
ascertain that the key owner has control over all e-mail addresses
listed with the UIDs on the public key.
