But that requires a key update by any peer who already has your key locally cached, whereas an irrevocable key expiry does not. Expiry is a more reliable cap on key abuse in a deep network where you cannot send updates to every peer who's used your key... or it would be, if it weren't flawed. :) -- -D. dgc@uchicago.edu NSIT University of Chicago
