Verifying files

To verify downloaded files are not tampered with, you need the .DIGESTS file matching your release and the matching key from the table above.

Fetch the key:

gpg --keyserver hkps://keys.gentoo.org --recv-keys <key fingerprint>

Verify the DIGESTS file:

gpg --verify <foo.DIGESTS.asc>

Verify the download matches the digests. At least one of the following will exist:

sha512sum -c <foo.DIGESTS.asc>

sha256sum -c <foo.DIGESTS.asc>

sha1sum -c <foo.DIGESTS.asc>


Detailed instructions are available in the Gentoo Handbook.
