#10056 closed defect (wontfix)

Openwrt image downloads insecure

Reported by: mosam Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


As far as I can tell, the Openwrt image can only be downloaded via plain http with the option to verify the download with the provided md5sum. However,
md5 is considered broken for a while now (
Ubuntu and other distributions use sha256 hashes and gpg signatures for verification of downloads, which is way more secure.

Is it possible to also get the sha256 hash and gpg signatures for Openwrt downloads?

md5 is sufficiently safe for us, while gpg requires a lot of tools for verifying the signature.
