Result

The file is downloaded to your computer.

3.4. Checksum Validation

Checksum validation is used to ensure a downloaded file has not been corrupted. Checksum validation employs algorithms that compute a fixed-size datum (or checksum) from an arbitrary block of digital data. If two parties compute a checksum of a particular file using the same algorithm, the results will be identical. Therefore, when computing the checksum of a downloaded file using the same algorithm as the supplier, if the checksums match, the integrity of the file is confirmed. If there is a discrepancy, the file has been corrupted in the download process.

3.5. Verify Downloaded Files

Procedure 3.2. Verify File Checksums on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

  1. Obtain checksum values for the downloaded file

    1. Navigate to https://access.redhat.com/jbossnetwork/. Login if required.
    2. Select your Product and Version.
    3. Select the package you want to verify to navigate to the Software Details page.
    4. Take note of the MD5 and SHA-256 checksum values.
  2. Run a checksum tool on the file

    1. Navigate to the directory containing the downloaded file in a terminal window.
    2. Run md5sum downloaded_file.
    3. Run sha256sum downloaded_file.
    Example output:
    [localhost]$ md5sum downloaded_file
    4564d1a5190110dbe8170e50d7353a97  downloaded_file
    [localhost]$ sha256sum downloaded_file
    25b6bd3c5f47b316639b014d041cdb6a515e3a4a32d30a479141cd8ceecb853e  downloaded_file
  3. Compare the checksum values

    1. Compare the checksum values returned by the md5sum and sha256sum commands with the corresponding values displayed on the Software Details page.
    2. Download the file again if the two checksum values are not identical. A difference between the checksum values indicates that the file has either been corrupted during download or has been modified since it was uploaded to the server. Contact Red Hat Support for assistance if after several downloads the checksum does not successfully validate.
    3. The downloaded file is safe to use if the two checksum values are identical.
Result

The integrity of the downloaded file is verified.

Note

No checksum tool is included with Microsoft Windows. Download a third-party MD5 application such as MD5summer from http://www.md5summer.org/.
