Why does TV not provide checksums and/or signatures for all downloads?

Hi,

why does TeamViewer not provide checksums and/or signatures for all the downloads?
There is no way to verify the integrity of the files otherwise.

Support was contacted about this before but there was no response at all!

Regards!
Mike

@mmaier Please excuse that you have not yet received a response from us on this. Do you have a ticket number for this case? Every time you submit a ticket to us you will receive a confirmation via e-mail. The TeamViewer installation packages are digitally signed. You can verify this by right-clicking on the file clicking on Properties - Digital Signatures. Please do only download TeamViewer from our official website www.teamviewer.com/download 

Best, 

Eduardo

Hi,

There are no digital signature on the .tar.xz and .deb files linked on your download page!

@mmaier Thank you for your patience. I wanted to give you an update regarding your question from the Q & A session.

I just got this information from our Linux Developers: 

The RPM packages are digitally signed. Please click here for further reference (have a look at: public key).

On Debian is not usual to have a signature, but the Debian Repositories are digitally signed (at the moment our Rasperry Pi module).

We do not offer a checksum, we only provide downloads via HTTPS.

Do you see an added value in providing a checksum?

Since this board is blocked for the Q & A session itself, are you welcome to open a new topic in the TeamViewer 12 board if you would like to discuss it further with other Linux experts here in the Community.

Thank you,

Eduardo
