6.1.1 Common Data Types

Some hooks take arguments which are more complex than a simple string or number (they are a Lua “table”). Where multiple hooks take the same kind of argument, we generally try to make them take that kind of argument in the same format, described here.

   id = "key hash/fingerprint, in hex",
   given_name = "name given when creating the key",
   name = "local alias of the key"

When a key is created, it is given a meaningful name. Because this is chosen by the key creator and may be unreliable, trust hooks need to be able to look at the key hash as well. This may be inconvenient, so a local alias is also provided. This alias is obtained from a Lua hook, which can provide reliable easy-to-use names based on the key hash (or however else you want).
