checkasum is a simple tool for hashing a file, and comparing the result with a known 'checksum' value.
This allows the user to confirm the integrity of a file downloaded from the internet.
If the value returned from hashing a file matches the given checksum,
then chances are that the file has not been tampered with.
checkasum -m sha256 -p /path/to/file -e somechecksum
checkasum --method sha256 --path /path/to/file --expected somechecksum
