how to revoke a key?
Mon Mar 25 16:09:02 2002
a friend has lost his passphrase. He created a revocation ceritificate,
but do not know how to revoke it at the key servers.
I told him first he should import the revocation certifikate into his
keyring and afterwards he should export his key and send this export
to the key-server.
First he sent me his exported key. I was able to import it and saw that
it is revoked. But the transfer to the keyserver fails.
I tried to find information with google, but nowhere was an exact example.
So i am not really sure if my insctrucions where ok.
gpg was started as following:
gpg --send-keys --keyserver wwwkeys.nl.pgp.net revoked-key.asc
Es gibt nichts gutes ausser man tut es...
