If I remember things correctly both the key-ID and the fingerprint
can be faked, although the the fingerprint is harder. You really
want the combination of both.

For RSA keys, you want the keyid, fingerprint and keylength. I've seen keys that had identical fingerprints and keyids, but different keylengths.
