Today, I just want to share you an easy way to check the SHA1 digest using a the terminal in Mac OSX. This command is really useful when you need to know if any file -for example an ISO- was downloaded correctly.
- Step 1. Open a terminal.
- Step 2. Type next command and wait for the digest
openssl sha1 your_file
For example, I downloaded Kali Linux (the new distribution for penetration and security testing, :p)
openssl sha1 kali-linux-1.0.6-i386.iso
- Step 3. After running previous command, you will see:
Be happy with your SHA1 digest 🙂
