Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-850) Checksums can be defined in ivy.xml files
Date Fri, 16 Oct 2009 18:44:31 GMT


Zachary Bedell commented on IVY-850:

As an extension to this item, signing an ivy.xml with XML-DSIG elements could allow for cryptographic
certification of an entire ivy publication.  Signing the XML with embedded checksums would
cover the artifacts without requiring JAR signing (and also allowing non-JAR publications
to be certified).

The necessary elements could fit under the xs:any allowance currently under /ivy-module/info/
or perhaps be given their own explicit elements in the schema.

> Ivy currently supports verifying files using separate checksum files present in the same
location as the artifacts.  It would also be useful to support defining the checksum inline
as an attribute of an artifact. For some users this could be a preferable way to store the
checksum information. It is something we would find useful and one other person on the mailing
list commented that it was a good idea. There were no negative comments.
