I'm trying to upload my GPG key to a key server but I can't find it when using the search option on http://pgp.mit.edu

Code:
$ gpg --list-keys --keyid-format long
pub   4096R/AB5363734E59D2C7 2013-01-08

$ gpg --send-keys --keyserver pgp.mit.edu AB5363734E59D2C7
gpg: sending key 4E59D2C7 to hkp server pgp.mit.edu
$  gpg --send-keys --keyserver subset.pool.sks-keyservers.net AB5363734E59D2C7
gpg: sending key 4E59D2C7 to hkp server subset.pool.sks-keyservers.net

Then I tried to manually submit the key "AB5363734E59D2C7" via the website but I get:
Quote
Error handling request. Exception raised: Failure("Error while decoding ascii-armored key: text terminated before reaching PGP public key header line")

What is going wrong?

Nothing... if you are redacted@live.ca I pulled it down just fine.

Thanks could you remove my email so spambots don't harvest it?

When I put the key in the search box I get

MIT search engine is for the name of the key not the keyID.

For example our company KEYID is C26C17CD searching for that yields nothing but search for Tangible Cryptography and you will find the C26C17CD key.

When manually uploading the key (which you likely don't need to do) you must copy the ENTIRE public key.  The KeyID is merely an identifier it isn't the key.  Think of it as a serial number for the key.

For example, our company key

KEYID (short version): C26C17CD
KEYID (long version): 28BB715FC26C17CD
Fingerprint: 3AF3 01A1 91EC E112 621C  ACC0 28BB 715F C26C 17CD

spambots can harvest it directly from the PGP keyservers. Smiley

True, but I'll make them do the extra work.
