Nxt software is "fingerprinted" with GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) signatures.

1 Linux/UNIX

Note: You may need to install gpg from GNUPG.org.

  1. Point your web browser at https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/downloads/
    • The contents of the download directory will appear
  2. In this directory, you will see the latest software in a ZIP file, along with a corresponding .ASC file. The ZIP file contains the Nxt software, and the ASC file contains the GPG signature.
  3. Download both the clint ZIP file and its corresponding ASC file, and place them into the same directory on your UNIX/Linux system
  4. Execute the following command

    gpg --verify SIGFILE.asc

    ...where SIGFILE is the name of the ASC file

2 Mac OS X

Note: You may need to install GPG Suite from GPGTools.org.

  1. Point your web browser at https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/downloads/
    • The contents of the download directory will appear
  2. In this directory, you will see the latest software in a ZIP file, along with a corresponding .ASC file. The ZIP file contains the Nxt software, and the ASC file contains the GPG signature.
