I'm looking for the new Tails 3.2 checkums (md5, sha1, sha256, etc). It seems that there is no way to find it in its own site. Even googling it brings not much information. So there is something I'm losing in the site, somewhere that I should search for it?

ps: I know there are safest ways to check the iso but I just wanna use the checksum anyway.


Tails doesn't publish the hashes of the .iso in such a manner because it's always more secure to verify the signature. Users who are unfamiliar, unwilling or unable to use PGP are offered different means to fetch and verify the ISO through the installation guide.

As such, there is no official place where you will be able to find it.

Verifying the signature is the same as verifying the hash, since the signature is just a signed copy of the SHA512 hash of the .iso file, which also verifies the publisher of the hash.


Go to: https://tails.boum.org/contribute/build/reproducible/#index2h3

And you will find a link to the SHA-256 checksum of the latest ISO image.
