Hi, Le 02/04/2011 19:21, Justin B Rye a écrit : [ Lots of well-advised and interesting remarks, as always ] Thanks a lot Justin. No one else had something to add so far, so I reattach the file you just sent, in order to gather last remarks before committing it (well, it will be on CVS, so we can always change or add stuff afterwards). Regards David P.-S.: I may continue bothering the L10n English list if that's OK with you for further WML editing (I'm not confident enough in my en_FR for what I plan to change in a near future).
#use wml::debian::cdimage title="Verifying authenticity of Debian CDs" BARETITLE=true <p>Official releases of Debian CDs come with signed checksum files. These allow you to check that the images you download are correct. First of all, the checksum can be used to check that the CDs have not been corrupted during download. Secondly, the signatures on the checksum files allow you to confirm that the files are the ones officially released by the Debian CD / Debian Live team and have not been tampered with.</p> <p>To validate the contents of a CD image, just be sure to use the appropriate checksum tool. For older archived CD releases, only MD5 checksums were generated in the <tt>MD5SUMS</tt> files; you should use the tool <tt>md5sum</tt> to work with these. For newer releases, newer and cryptographically stronger checksum algorithms (SHA1, SHA256 and SHA512) are used, and there are equivalent tools available to work with these.</p> <p>To ensure that the checksums files themselves are correct, use GnuPG to verify them against the accompanying signature files (e.g. <tt>MD5SSUMS.sign</tt>). The keys used for these signatures are all in the <a href="http://keyring.debian.org">Debian GPG keyring</a> and the best way to check them is to use that keyring to validate via the web of trust. To make life easier for users, here are the fingerprints for the keys that have been used for releases in recent years (with some UIDs removed for clarity):</p> #include "$(ENGLISHDIR)/CD/CD-keys.data" <p> Official <q>role</q> keys have gradually replaced the use of personal keys belonging to developers. However, a decision was made not to go back and re-sign all the old releases that were already signed using the older keys.</p>
