It is important to keep a revocation key in a secure location. It’s not enough to simply save the file on your computer or back it up on an external hard drive. There are five places where you should consider keeping a copy of the revocation key for future reference:

1) In a safe deposit box at your bank

2) At home in your attic, basement, or garage (be sure to hide it well!)

3) With an attorney who has power of attorney over your affairs and finances

4) With another person with whom you have shared passwords and encryption keys with before

5) On paper stored securely off-site.

You might also want to generate a revocation certificate and save it in your five places as well. A revocation certificate is a file containing the public key that you created after generating an RSA private/public key pair, which allows someone (or something) else besides yourself to revoke your public key if needed for whatever reason.

The Five Places Where You Should Keep Your Revocation Key: [Link] by Jeremy Weiss on December 15th, 2017 “What’s hot” Blog Post

It is important to keep a revocation type of document called the �revocation key� securely stored away from all other documents or digital files both at home and elsewhere. If people ever lose their public key or private key for whatever reason, they have to generate a revocation certificate and save it in their five places. A revocation type of document is one that allows someone (or something) other than yourself to revoke your public key if needed for any number of reasons.

Best practices dictate keeping the following items as part of your �five-place� strategy:

A USB drive on which the Revocation Certificate is saved;

An external hard drive where you keep all non-revoked certificates;

A safe deposit box at a bank in case you need to urgently access revoked certificates later down the road;

The first page of your passport containing both sides with writing on them because this is considered an acceptable form of identification in most countries (but not all);

A second page of your passport where you have affixed the Revocation Certificate to it.
