Then cd to the location of your download and do : md5sum  YourDebian.iso.

well preferably one of the other hashing algorithms, since md5
is considered broken

what I have read is that you can "easy" find another DadFile.iso file with the same YourDebian.iso md5, but it is very hard to have that this DadFile.iso file is a real .iso file, more hard is to have into the .iso file something usable, than having a Debian system altered is (very hard)^3^3

I think that md5 is appropriate to verify a .iso file and is not need a stronger algorithm.
