This usually refers to sandwich standard errors aka HC or HC0 in case of
the linear regression model. These are available in package "car" or
package "sandwich". See vignette("sandwich", package = "sandwich") for a

This performs robust estimation of the linear model while robust standard
errors employ the usual OLS estimation and just adjust the subsequent
inference. The robustness properties are quite different. While robust
standard errors still require that the linear equation for the conditional
mean holds for all observations, this is relaxed in robust estimates of
the regression coefficients. More details can be found in the reference of
the corresponding manuals.
