What are checksums?
A checksum is a string of characters that represents a file’s data and is a way of making sure a file you have is the same as another.
In this case you can compare the ISO file you have downloaded to the one produced by the creator to make sure it has not been tampered with or corrupted during transfer.
You can generate an MD5 checksum on non-Windows systems by opening a terminal and using the md5sum program.
$ md5sum /path/to/Chapeau_23_x86-64.iso
Once you have your checksum then compare it to the one provided by the file creator to ensure they match.
If using Microsoft Windows you need to install a MD5 checksum program such as the graphical freeware program WinMD5 or Microsoft’s command-line ‘Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Identifier‘ program and use accordingly.
