On https://golang.org/dl/, there are links to each Go release, along with SHA256 checksums. However, the security of those checksums is only ensured by HTTPS. I learned recently that there are also PGP signatures for each release. So to go along with:

https://dl.google.com/go/go1.14.2.linux-amd64.tar.gz

There is also:

https://dl.google.com/go/go1.14.2.linux-amd64.tar.gz.asc

It would be great to document that fact on https://golang.org/dl/, along with instructions on how to validate the signature.
