    Description

      === Task ===
      Check integrity and authenticity of the downloaded source archive.

      === Description ===
      You could create a hash (e.g. sha256) of the archive and place it in a file available for download with the archive.
      Then this file containing a hash has to be signed with a trusted GPG key (for example, anything PKI is good), making the public key widely available.
      That way one could verify the integrity of the file and authenticity of the file.
