It means that a user of that key has a way to identify that subkey by
means outside of gpg.  That user and the holder of that key also have
verified every bit of the source of their OS, including compiler and
compiler used to build the compiler, as well as the hardware,
scrutinized the Intel ME, fixed all bugs in gpg, live in tempest
shielded rooms several floors below the ground, and keep rubber hoses
locked away. SCNR.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
