What is the meaning of "Addresses can be created that require a combination of multiple private keys" ?

Does it mean "Addresses can be created. and Adresses require a combination of multiple private keys" ?

Is the sentence a grammatically correct sentence structure? So, does " Subject1 + Verb1 + that + Verb2 + Object" mean " Subject1 + Verb1. and Subject1 + verb2 + Object " ?

    Yes. "That require a combination of multiple private keys" is a relative clause modifying "addresses". We understand that addresses that require a combination of multiple private keys can be created. – BillJ Jan 19 '18 at 8:15

It is a standard "that-clause" construction which can otherwise be re-ordered as:

  • Addresses that require a combination of multiple private keys can be created.

This means that such addresses can be created.
