I'm still kind of lost on what a fingerprint is (in the OTR context) 
I've heard of D/RSA fingerprints.. is it the same?
Is this a fingerprint?:

"Calculate the session id as the SHA-1 hash of the (5+len)-byte value
composed of the byte 0x00, followed by the (4+len) bytes of
secbytes. When a new private connection is established, display
these 8 bytes to the user as two 4-byte (big-endian) values, in C
"%08x" format."
