This is the beginning of a tale of adventure, perhaps one of woe, one that has no current end. Major characters are established and there is material for a prequel in which many characters are killed off.
This is the beginning of the tale of my attempt to build a personal cloud, a "cloudlet" to borrow a term from C4 Labs, a "cluster" of Raspberry Pi computers.
I have sort of a love/hate relationship with strong crypto. I love it and hate that my sphere doesn't use it much. That lack of use sometimes leads me to complacency and my GPG key is no exception. I've used the same key since 2008 with no rotation. It's a 1024 DSA primary key with a single RSA subkey. The key's bounced around from machine to machine and who knows if it stayed secure the whole time. Also, DSA has fallen out of favor as has keylengths that short.
Time to generate a new key.
