Verifying the Release

In order to verify the release, you'll need to have gpg or gpg2 installed on your system. Once you've obtained a copy (and hopefully verified that as well), you'll first need to import roasbeef's key if you haven't done so already:

curl https://keybase.io/roasbeef/pgp_keys.asc | gpg --import

The keybase page of roasbeef includes several attestations across distinct platforms in order to provoide a degree of confidence that this release was really signed by "roasbeef".

Once you have his PGP key you can verify the release (assuming manifest-v0.1.3.1-alpha.txt and manifest-v0.1.3.1-alpha.txt.sig are in the current directory) with:

gpg --verify manifest-v0.1.3.1-alpha.txt.sig

That will verify the signature on the main manifest page which ensures integrity and authenticity of the binaries you've downloaded locally. Next, depending on your operating system you should then re-calculate the sha256 sum of the binary, and compare that with the following hashes (which are included in the manifest file):

c1d53bef62b720c7af22c2b00fd639499ab0c89ec9bfbfe2804d5e1d55346d0a  Lightning-linux-x64v0.1.3.1.tar.gz

One can use the shasum -a 256 <file name here> tool in order to re-compute the sha256 hash of the target binary for your operating system. The produced hash should be compared with the hashes listed above and they should match exactly.

This release can also be found in roasbeef's public keybase folder.
