It's essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP or MD5 signatures. The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download the KEYS as well as the asc signature file for the relevant distribution. Make sure you get these files from the main distribution directory, rather than from a mirror. Then verify the signatures using:
% pgpk -a KEYS % pgpv apache-cloudstack-X.X.X-src.tar.bz2.asc
% pgp -ka KEYS % pgp apache-cloudstack-X.X.X-src.tar.bz2.asc
% gpg --import KEYS % gpg --verify apache-cloudstack-X.X.X-src.tar.bz2.asc
Additionally, you can verify the MD5 or SHA512 signatures on the files.
