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-1.2.0.pax.sha512", then use this command to check:
(gpg --print-md SHA512 zowe-1.2.0.pax > zowe-1.2.0.pax.sha512.my) && diff zowe-1.2.0.pax.sha512.my zowe-1.2.0.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-1.2.0.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.
There are few steps:
- Import the public key with command: gpg --import KEYS.jack
- If you never use gpg before, you may need to generate keys first: gpg --gen-key. Otherwise, please proceed to next step.
- Sign the downloaded public key with command: gpg --sign-key ADA180F59191D808
- Verify the file with command: gpg --verify zowe-1.2.0.pax.asc zowe-1.2.0.pax
- You can remove the imported key with command: gpg --delete-key ADA180F59191D808
If you see output like this:
gpg: Signature made Thu 07 Mar 2019 02:36:19 PM EST
gpg: using RSA key ADA180F59191D808
gpg: Good signature from "Jack Tiefeng Jia (CODE SIGNING KEY)
After completing these steps you can be assured that the binary file you have has come from the Zowe project.
