Release archive checksum verification

If you would like to verify the checksum of a HashiCorp product download (specifically, an archive from https://releases.hashicorp.com), please note that only the SHA256SUM file is signed by the PGP key above. The archives themselves are not signed, but rather hashed. To verify the integrity of a particular archive:

  • Download the archive, SHA256SUM, and SHA256SUM.sig files (multiple .sig files may be present, named with the associated signing PGP key ID)

  • Verify the SHA256SUM file is properly signed

  • Verify the SHA256SUM in the file matches the archive

For example:

# Import the public key as referenced above.
curl -s https://www.hashicorp.com/.well-known/pgp-key.txt | gpg --import

# Download the archive and signature files.
curl -Os https://releases.hashicorp.com/vault/1.15.2/vault_1.15.2_linux_amd64.zip
curl -Os https://releases.hashicorp.com/vault/1.15.2/vault_1.15.2_SHA256SUMS
curl -Os https://releases.hashicorp.com/vault/1.15.2/vault_1.15.2_SHA256SUMS.sig

# Verify the signature file is untampered.
gpg --verify vault_1.15.2_SHA256SUMS.sig vault_1.15.2_SHA256SUMS

# Verify the SHASUM matches the archive.
shasum -a 256 -c vault_1.15.2_SHA256SUMS --ignore-missing

Linux package checksum verification

HashiCorp's Linux repositories and packages, as announced in 2020, are signed with a separate GPG key. This is available at https://rpm.releases.hashicorp.com/gpg and https://apt.releases.hashicorp.com/gpg, and has the fingerprint 798A EC65 4E5C 1542 8C8E 42EE AA16 FCBC A621 E701.

Please note that there was a previous signing key used prior to January 23, 2023, which had the fingerprint E8A0 32E0 94D8 EB4E A189 D270 DA41 8C88 A321 9F7B. This certificate was revoked on April 24, 2023.

Product binary signature verification

HashiCorp Authenticode signs Microsoft Windows executables and code signs Apple macOS executables.

Apple macOS

Use Apple's codesign utility to verify the integrity of an Apple macOS executable and pay attention to the TeamIdentifier field which should match the one below.

codesign --verify -d --verbose=2 /usr/local/bin/terraform

Executable=/usr/local/bin/terraform
Identifier=terraform
...
Authority=Developer ID Application: Hashicorp, Inc. (D38WU7D763)
Authority=Developer ID Certification Authority
Authority=Apple Root CA
...
TeamIdentifier=D38WU7D763
...

Microsoft Windows

Windows binaries may be signed by certificates with thumbprints matching 7868E4F55FD7B047CD8BF93FEA8C38509CFB59396F1DCD6FE62C173708E26E25D19656E413277816, or 35AB9FC834D217E9E7B1778FB1B97AF7C73792F2.

Use Microsoft's Get-AuthenticodeSignature cmdlet to verify the integrity of a Microsoft Windows executable. For example:
