Session Desktop

Summary

Session integrates directly with Oxen Service Nodes, which are a set of distributed, decentralized and Sybil resistant nodes. Service Nodes act as servers which store messages offline, and a set of nodes which allow for onion routing functionality obfuscating users IP Addresses. For a full understanding of how Session works, read the Session Whitepaper.

Verifing signatures

Get Kee's key and import it:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/oxen-io/oxen-core/master/utils/gpg_keys/KeeJef.asc
gpg --import KeeJef.asc

Get the signed hash for this release, the SESSION_VERSION needs to be updated for the release you want to verify

export SESSION_VERSION=1.6.1
wget https://github.com/oxen-io/session-desktop/releases/download/v$SESSION_VERSION/signatures.asc

Verify the signature of the hashes of the files

gpg --verify signatures.asc 2>&1 |grep "Good signature from"

The command above should print "Good signature from "Kee Jefferys..." If it does, the hashes are valid but we still have to make the sure the signed hashes matches the downloaded files.

Make sure the two commands below returns the same hash. If they do, files are valid

sha256sum session-desktop-linux-amd64-$SESSION_VERSION.deb
grep .deb signatures.asc
