There is not much to say. When making a notation or a policy URL you
can use several %-escapes in the string. The %-escapes are expanded
when the string is used:
%k the keyid of the key you are signing
%K the long keyid of the key you are signing
%f the fingerprint of the key you are signing
%s the keyid of the key making the signature
%S the long keyid of the key making the signature
%g the fingerprint of the key making the signature
%p the primary key fingerprint of the key making the signature
%% is "%".
For example, if you had a cert-policy-url of:
And signed key 99242560 with key 12345678, the policy URL would be:
