This Confluence wiki site, maintained by DuraSpace prior to the recent merger with LYRASIS, will transition from the duraspace.org domain to the lyrasis.org domain on Saturday, Nov 16 beginning at approximately 7pm ET. A period of downtime of 2-3 hours is expected. After the transition, this wiki will be available at https://wiki.lyrasis.org/. All links to duraspace.org wiki pages will be redirected to the correct lyrasis.org URL. If you have questions prior to or following the transition please contact: wikihelp@lyrasis.org.

This documentation refers to an earlier version of Islandora. https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/ISLANDORA/Start is current.

Overview

A simple module to allow repository managers to enable the creation of a checksum for objects. If enabled, the following checksum algorithms are available: MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512.

This will checksum all datastreams.

Note: There is a difference between a security application of SHA and data integrity application of SHA.  Islandora's application is for the latter, for data integrity. For Islandora's purposes, any of the checksum algorithms can be used.

Unzip this module into your site's modules directory as you would any other contrib module. See this for further information.

 

Configuration

Enable and set checksum type in Administration » Islandora » Islandora Utility Modules » Checksum (admin/islandora/tools/checksum). To retroactively enable checksums on existing objects, enable and set checksum type if you have not already done so, and choose a collection and click on the 'Enable' button.
