The how-to guides:
all steer people away from keeping the main key on a card. Yet some of
the coloured notes here:
suggest that may not be best practice today.
Can anyone comment on the state of play?
My understanding is that various possibilities exist, potentially with
- main RSA private key
- used for signing other keys
- kept in a safe at home
- sub key
- signed by main key
- card that is kept in the wallet
