 Description  « Hide
John Frankland in firebird-devel and several other forums:
> What is the practice regarding digital signing of Firebird executables and installers etc.?
> Some releases have been signed with a "Firebird Inc" certificate in the past but it seems signing is not always done.
> Can signing be adopted as a policy?

Alex Peshkov in firebird-devel:
It's really funny. Sha256 checksums are provided for snapshot builds but not for releases.

Sean Leyne in firebird-devel:
SHA hashes are fine to validate downloads, but they are not the same as signing the install kits/executable.

Windows has increasingly made it difficult to install and/or run non-signed kits/executables.
