That is a protocol neutral way to identify a public key. It is a hash
over the actual public key parameters. It is GnuPG specific but for
example, pkcs#15 uses a similar technique. To compute it, you should
use the respective Libgcrypt function.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
