  • Verify Hash and Signature of Zowe Binary

    These commands are tested on both Mac OS X v10.13.6 and Ubuntu v17.11.



    Step 1 - Verify Hash Code

    You can download hash code file "zowe-0.9.4.pax.sha512", then use this command to check:


    (gpg --print-md SHA512 zowe-0.9.4.pax > zowe-0.9.4.pax.sha512.my) && diff zowe-0.9.4.pax.sha512.my zowe-0.9.4.pax.sha512 && echo matched || echo "not match"


    If you see "matched" means the binary you have downloaded is the same one that was officially distributed by the Zowe project. You can delete temporary "zowe-0.9.4.pax.sha512.my" after that.


    You can also use other commands, like "sha512", "sha512sum", or "openssl dgst -sha512" to generate SHA512 hash code. Just those hash code results are in a different format from what we provided but the values should be the same.




    Step 2 - Verify With Signature File

    In addition to the SHA512 hash we ensure that the hash is verifiable as well. This is done by digitally signing the hash text file with a KEY from one of the Zowe developers.


    You can download the signature file "zowe-0.9.4.pax.asc", and also public key "KEYS" from https://github.com/zowe/release-management/.


    There are few steps:

    1. Import the public key with command: gpg --import KEYS
    2. If you never use gpg before, you may need to generate keys first: gpg --gen-key. Otherwise, please proceed to next step.
    3. Sign the downloaded public key with command: gpg --sign-key DC8633F77D1253C3
    4. Verify the file with command: gpg --verify zowe-0.9.4.pax.asc zowe-0.9.4.pax
    5. You can remove the imported key with command: gpg --delete-key DC8633F77D1253C3

    If you see output like this:

    gpg: Signature made Tue 14 Aug 2018 08:29:46 AM EDT
    gpg:         using RSA key DC8633F77D1253C3
    gpg: Good signature from "Matt Hogstrom (CODE SIGNING KEY) " [full]


    After completing these steps you can be assured that the binary file you have has come from the Zowe project.
