Interesting, something has gone wrong with your security keys. Possible reasons:

outdated CD (keys no longer valid)
corrupt CD (keys unreadable)
time issues
bad mirror
man-in-the-middle attack/repo poisoning (extremely unlikely)

You can try another CD (possibly downloaded&burned from a different machine than you used last time). Or you can use the 'advanced' option of the installer, and simply skip the software installation part. This *should* give you a working install without anything but the base OS. Then you can update your sources.list and install manually.

Looks normal. Clearly the issue is related to the key error you receive above.
