Bear in mind that the Public Key is intended to be just that - public. It is useless to anyone else as only you have the Private Key that forms the pair, so there is no problem at all about the public key being accessible. It can *only* be used to compare against your signature. It cannot be used in any attempt to pretend to be you.
