GNU/Linux Command – SHASUM

sha1sum – Compute and Check Secure Hash Algorithm Std 1 message digest.
`sha1sum’ computes a 160-bit checksum/fingerprint/message-digest for each specified file. `sha1sum’ can also determine whether a file and checksum are consistent. The sums are computed as described in FIPS-180-1 –
$ sha1sum file -- Compute and print the MD5 checksum of that file.  $ sha1sum -c input.txt -- Read checksum and filename from the file and validate checksums.  $ sha1sum -w -c input.txt -- Same as above and warn if the checksums format is wrong in the file.  $ sha1sum --status -c input.txt -- Indicate the status in exit status code.  Format of input.txt file: 2bff10a7855964335a86e84efb5f4ce9c40d4cfd file1 e62341664decd9f55896ab3635697de29ed1077f file2 9b088ddc22456233a76 file3
