Question about software

While downloading software, a hash may be provided to do what?  I just need to know if it is a genuine number or correct file path?  I am not sure

The hash is a random set of characters that can be used to uniquely identify a file, and it is provided so you can verify if a downloaded file is a valid copy of the one you wanted to download (i.e., you can verify if the downloaded file was not tampered with).

The process is simple:

  • you download the file
  • you use the file with a hash generator (you can easily find free hash generators on the Internet) and check the generated sequence against the hash provided by the site. If the values are equal the file is ok (i.e., it is a copy of the file provided by the site).
