Check integrity of Gpg4win packages

Usually you can use Microsoft's own methods to check that the installer is signed by one of the current code signing certificates listed below.

Microsoft will normally display the code signature in an user account control dialog when you try to execute the downloaded file; alternatively you can take a look in the file properties with the explorer.

Additional methods how to check the integrity can be found on the Wiki page on integrity checks.

OpenPGP signatures

For gpg4win-4.0.0.exe: https://files.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-4.0.0.exe.sig
For gpg4win-4.0.0.tar.bz2: https://files.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-4.0.0.tar.bz2.sig

Since 2021 the signatures are created by one of the official GnuPG release keys (aka certificates) they can be obtained from the GnuPG Homepage or downloaded from public keyservers.

Previous public key (used up to 2021):
Intevation File Distribution Key
(Fingerprint: 13E3 CE81 AFEA 6F68 3E46 6E0D 42D8 7608 2688 DA1A)

Previous public key (used up to 2016):
Intevation File Distribution Key
(Fingerprint: 61AC 3F5E E4BE 593C 13D6 8B1E 7CBD 620B EC70 B1B8)

Checking the signature is best done via the File Explorer: Right click on the file and use GpgEX options -> verify.
