[Solved] How to verify ISO images on macOS?

Post by hehemrin » Sun Oct 28, 2018 10:10 am

Reference:https://linuxmint.com/verify.php Mint 19.
How to verify ISO images.

I have tried, but failed, to verify with the Terminal on macOS (Mojave):
Integrity check: I do manage on macOS.
Authenticity check: I do not find out how to do this; eg "gpg" command for a start is not understood by the terminal.

I have done various trials and reading web sites, but not found information how to do the Authenticity check on macOS. Nor have I found info it is not possible.

Can anyone shine some light on this?

Best regards
Henrik

Oki, thanks N3wb. But I actually solved with a work around: I used a trusted Live-CD Linux, and did the Authenticity check that way. By that; I didn't need to install a new program. Pity the macOS Terminal does not have a command to do it directly! Although I haven't tested your solution for macOS; I will label as solved, as I do not intend to test and follow up further, at least not for time being.
