Check integrity of Gpg4win packages

How to actually perform the checks can be found on the Wiki page on integrity checks.

Code Signing Certificate

All Gpg4win exe installer files since April 2016 are signed with the following code signing certificate:

OpenPGP signatures

For gpg4win-3.0.0.exe: https://files.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-3.0.0.exe.sig
For gpg4win-src-3.0.0.exe: https://files.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-src-3.0.0.exe.sig
For gpg4win-3.0.0.tar.bz2: https://files.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-3.0.0.tar.bz2.sig

The signatures have been created with the following OpenPGP certificate:
Intevation File Distribution Key
(Fingerprint: 61AC 3F5E E4BE 593C 13D6 8B1E 7CBD 620B EC70 B1B8)


Since 2017 new releases are additionally signed with a new certificate that matches more modern key standards:
Intevation File Distribution Key
(Fingerprint: 13E3 CE81 AFEA 6F68 3E46 6E0D 42D8 7608 2688 DA1A)

The certificate can also be retrieved from OpenPGP certificate servers. Loading a certificate from a certificate server can be done e.g. via Kleopatra or GPA. Checking the signature of a file is best done with GpgEX via the Explorer.
