More suppliers should include sha hashcodes for their downloads

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/28

I’m really glad that more and more suppliers are providing sha hashes for their downloads.

It allows you to verify an already downloaded binary is in fact

For instance, Cisco does this with their Jabber Messaging software. That way I could verify the (when I wrote this) most recent versions were indeed the ones I already had by just clicking on the filename (no need to click on the Download button).

  • Mac:
    • $ shasum -a 512 CiscoJabberMac-
  • Windows:
    • $ shasum -a 512
