Verify the integrity of the files

Apache relies on 3rd party mirrors to distribute their software. Because these releases are hosted on servers that are not under our control, we strongly recommend that you verify the integrity of the binaries or source code before you install it using the PGP or MD5 signatures listed next to the downloads. This involves a few extra steps, but it will verify that you are getting a true Apache release.

The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download the KEYS as well as the asc signature file for the relevant distribution. Make sure you get these files as linked from this page (rather than a mirror) to insure the integrity of the files.

% pgpk -a KEYS

% pgpv apache-flex-squiggly-1.1-src.tar.gz.asc


% pgp -ka KEYS

% pgp apache-flex-squiggly-1.1-src.tar.gz.asc


% gpg --import KEYS

% gpg --verify apache-flex-squiggly-1.1-src.tar.gz.asc

Alternatively, you can verify the MD5 signature on the files. A unix/Mac program called md5 or md5sum is included in many unix distributions. It is also available as part of GNU Textutils. Windows users can get binary md5 programs from here , here , or here. An MD5 signature consists of 32 hex characters, and a SHA1 signature consists of 40 hex characters. Ensure your generated signature string matches the signature string published in the files above.
