Artifact Checksums

Along with the binaries published via GitHub Releases we provide the checksum files, *.sha256sum.txt, for each of the target architecture archive. Below is an example of validating darwin-amd64 binaries for release v1.39.0:

  • download jaeger-1.39.0-darwin-amd64.sha256sum.txt
  • download jaeger-1.39.0-darwin-amd64.tar.gz
# expand the archive
$ tar -xz jaeger-1.39.0-darwin-amd64.tar.gz

# find checksum for hotrod example
$ grep hotrod jaeger-1.39.0-darwin-amd64.sha256sum.txt
5088bcd396351edebf9280ee4d5d0f89f4839ecd64a8711e91a22dea6ddb719c *jaeger-1.39.0-darwin-amd64/example-hotrod

# regenerate the checksum from the binary and compare
$ shasum -b -a 256 jaeger-1.39.0-darwin-amd64/example-hotrod
5088bcd396351edebf9280ee4d5d0f89f4839ecd64a8711e91a22dea6ddb719c *jaeger-1.39.0-darwin-amd64/example-hotrod

Signed Artifacts

NOTE: will be enabled in the next release.

We also publish cryptographic signatures for each of the artifact archives. The signatures can be verified using the public key below.

Verify signature

From the release page (TODO: provide link and fix versions):

  • Download jaeger-1.39.4-darwin-amd64.tar.gz
  • Download jaeger-1.39.4-darwin-amd64.tar.gz.asc

Use gpg --verify {signature-file} file, e.g.:

$ gpg --verify jaeger-1.39.4-darwin-amd64.tar.gz.asc jaeger-1.39.4-darwin-amd64.tar.gz
gpg: Signature made Wed Nov  9 13:34:17 2022 EST
