That is not relevant.  The key (correct OpenPGP term is “keyblock” but
sometimes also called “certificate”) is in itself secure; the included
self-signature and signatures from other people shall be used to
evaluate the identity of the key owner.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
