Md5 File Checksum, Sha256 File Checksum, Sha512 File Checksum
A checksum is a string of numbers and letters that act as a fingerprint for a file against which later comparisons can be made to detect errors in the data. They are important because we use them to check files for integrity.
After downloading any software installation package, you can calculate SHA512 or MD5 or SHA256... checksums on the installation file. Use the calculated corresponding checksum to compare with the checksum provided for that installation file on the download page. This way you can verify the integrity of the download.
This makes a lot of sense because if the downloaded software is incomplete, it means it has been modified, and most likely has a virus or other malicious code inside.
There are many checksum programs available on the Internet. and Sita Application is one of the online software that supports checking file checksum codes.
