Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-558) Validate Content-MD5 request headers on uploads
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2009 23:08:59 GMT


Damien Katz commented on COUCHDB-558:

Robert is correct, MD5 is fine for validating integrity, and as far as I know, it's the only
hash function that's standardized in HTTP.

For fully secure, unspoofable transmission, SSL is the way to go anyway.

with the data and Couch validates the MD5 on arrival.
