I assume you mean key ID?  The regular or short key ID is just the
lower half of the long key ID.

For example:

Long keyID:  DB698D7199242560
Short keyID:         99242560

Incidentally, for OpenPGP keys (DH/DSS or v4 RSA) you can do the same
trick with "how do I get a key id from a fingerprint".

Fingerprint: 7D92FD313AB6F3734CC59CA1DB698D7199242560
Long keyID:                          DB698D7199242560
Short keyID:                                 99242560
