- From the man page:
- --list-sigs [names]
Same as --list-keys, but the signatures are listed too.
For each signature listed, there are several flags in between
the "sig" tag and keyid. These flags give additional infor-
mation about each signature. From left to right, they are
the numbers 1-3 for certificate check level (see --ask-cert-
level), "L" for a local or non-exportable signature (see
--lsign-key), "R" for a nonRevocable signature (see the
--edit-key command "nrsign"), "P" for a signature that con-
tains a policy URL (see --cert-policy-url), "N" for a signa-
ture that contains a notation (see --cert-notation), "X" for
an eXpired signature (see --ask-cert-expire), and the numbers
1-9 or "T" for 10 and above to indicate trust signature
levels (see the --edit-key command "tsign").
- --check-sigs [names]
Same as --list-sigs, but the signatures are verified.
