eth2's justification is a product of attester votes on checkpoints being included on the chain. The goal of justification is to decide which checkpoint is the head of the beacon chain.
If 2/3 of active validators agree on a source and target checkpoint pair, wherein the source epoch is justified, then the target epoch is also justified. If two epochs in a row (with an arbitrary gap allowed between them–to allow the chain to finalize eventually, even under extreme conditions when the majority of validators have been offline for an extended period of time) are justified, the first one of those two is deemed finalized.
