comment What is the best way to organize OpenPGP keys?
You can have a primary key without encryption and signature capability, indicating it won't be used for these purposes. I'd at least recommend removing the encryption capability, otherwise some weird and broken OpenPGP implementation will come up encrypting for the offline primary key. Considering key expiration, I'll simply refer to another question where this topic is already discussed: security.stackexchange.com/q/14718/19837

Copy-edited. OpenPGP is the standard, PGP is a proprietary implementation.

comment Purpose of secret-subkeys?
Keys for public/private key (asymmetric) cryptography always occur in pairs. You could have different sets of private keys on different machiens, others would only have your public keys. I don't see the reason why the usage is omitted from the secret keys list, but those lists can differ, thus you can query it separately. Keys named sec are secret primary keys, keys named ssb are secret subkeys (from "Secret SuBkeys").

I quoted a reference with the data (which still need verification with the video, given the contents of the video are not faked either) in the other question I linked. If my post answered your question, consider accepting it (have a look at the FAQ for details).

Pretty much at the same time you posted, another similar question specific to the (proclaimed) ISIS video was posted: security.stackexchange.com/q/111698/19837 -- I added some more thoughts on the video over there.

Searching for the first few characters, you can find a dump of questionable quality. After fixing some obvious problems, one can actually print the OpenPGP headers through pgpdump (and other people also did that already). I don't provide links here as I didn't further verify those documents.

You can't say whether he created a fake key or not, but you can say somebody faked GnuPG's output. Just out of curiosity: did anybody send the text in the video through some OCR software and have a look at what's in there? ;)

By coincidence, there was a related, but not duplicate question on this topic asked at just about the same time.
