Verifying Binaries

Each release contains a manifest file with sha256 hashes for the binaries in that release. To verify these, you will need:

  • SHA256 - Once you download your file(s), you need to check their SHA256 hashes, so you may need to download a tool to do this, depending on your OS.
  • GnuPG or PGP - This is required to import public keys and verify signatures. Examples below use GnuPG.

The steps to verify the binaries are as follows:

  1. Download the file manifest, the signature for the file manifest, and the zip/tarball for your OS from here.

  2. Obtain the SHA256 value for the zip/tarball for your OS and check that it matches the value in the file manifest, e.g. for 64-bit Linux

    $ sha256sum linux-amd64-20160127-02.tar.gz
      8ffaa268a329890ebf0f96b3cd1bc9f69359e431edbb95d89cec5a605108574b linux-amd64-20160127-02.tar.gz
    
  3. Import the Decred Release Signing Key in GnuPG.

    $ gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 0x518A031D
       gpg: requesting key 518A031D from hkp server pgp.mit.edu
       gpg: /home/user/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
       gpg: key 7608AF04: public key "Decred Release <release@decred.org>" imported
       gpg: Total number processed: 1
       gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)
    
  4. Verify the signature for the file manifest is valid and created by the Decred Release Signing Key.

    $ gpg --verify manifest-20160127-02.txt.asc
      gpg: assuming signed data in `manifest-20160127-02.txt'
      gpg: Signature made Wed 27 Jan 2016 08:56:59 PM UTC using RSA key ID 518A031D
      gpg: Good signature from "Decred Release <release@decred.org>"
      gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
      gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
          Primary key fingerprint: FD13 B683 5E24 8FAF 4BD1 838D 6DF6 34AA 7608 AF04
           Subkey fingerprint: F516 ADB7 A069 852C 7C28 A02D 6D89 7EDF 518A 031D
    

The zip or tarball with binaries for your platform is now verified and you can be confident they were generated by the Decred team.
