Hi!

I have a question about Rekeying a Sqrl Identity in the Android App. When I rekey my Identity, it creates a new Identity which seems to be the correct rekeyed identity. But there is still the old identity with now has the pidk as the idk. I guess there should not be two identities after rekeying ... ?

Best regards

Hi @Sqrirrlerin, this actually is by design. At first I was a little irritated by this behaviour as well, so I discussed it with @kalaspuffar back in the days, and he confirmed that he implemented it this way intentionally. I think it was intended to be a kind of "better be safe than sorry"-approach.

So, at this point it's up to the user if he wishes to delete any superseded identity or not.
