What is the MD5 hash?
The MD5 hash is a checksum, or fingerprint, of a release file that has been calculated by the platform. You can use the MD5 hash to verify the integrity of a file that you download from Joinup. There is a very small possibility of getting two identical hashes of two different files. Many open-source tools allow to calculate and compare the MD5 hash of a file.
