I deleted my decryption sub-key by mistake and my back up was incomplete...
After taking advice it seems that the only way forward is (in order) to:
- Issue a new keypair
- Sign the new-keypair with my current signature
- Tell all those who signed my old-key of my new key ID
- Revoke my old keypair
- Publish my key
- The FSFE website states that the recommended procedure is to use the
smart card with sub-keys only. If however I am creating a new
key-pair and backing up the secret key to a safe place, then what is
If I lose my smart card would I not be able to continue with the
backed up secret-key?
- Is there any way to add a uid to the generated smart card, or is it
possible to only use one identity?
Any assistance would be much appreciated
