A reasonable way to achieve a long term backup of OpenPGP (GnuPG, PGP, etc) keys is to print them out on paper. Due to metadata and redundancy, OpenPGP secret keys are significantly larger than just the "secret bits". In fact, the secret key contains a complete copy of the public key. Since the public key generally doesn't need to be backed up in this way (most people have many copies of it on various keyservers, Web pages, etc), only extracting the secret parts can be a real advantage. Paperkey extracts just those secret bytes and prints them. To reconstruct, you re-enter those bytes (whether by hand or via OCR), and paperkey can use them to transform your existing public key into a secret key.
Release Notes: This release adds support for OpenPGP elliptic curve keys (ECDH and ECDSA) as specified in RFC 6637. It uses minimal OpenPGP packet encoding. This does not affect functionality, but makes it more likely that a given key will match byte-for-byte the same key after running through paperkey.
