Verify Integrity of Ops Manager Packages

On this page

  • Verify a deb Package
  • Verify an rpm Package
  • Verify a tar.gz Archive

Starting in Ops Manager 4.4.14, the MongoDB release team digitally signs Ops Manager packages to certify that they are valid and unaltered MongoDB releases. Before installing Ops Manager, validate the package using the provided PGP signature.

PGP signatures provide the strongest guarantees by checking both the authenticity and integrity of a file to prevent tampering.
