Many of the files have been signed using GnuPG.

If so, there will be an accompanying file.asc signature file in the same directory as the file (binaries or source).
The signing keys can be found in the distribution directory at

Always download the KEYS file directly from the Apache site, never from a mirror.

Always test available signatures eg.

$ pgpk -a KEYS
$ pgpv jmeter-2.13.tar.gz.asc
$ pgp -ka KEYS
$ pgp jmeter-2.13.tar.gz.asc
$ gpg --import KEYS
$ gpg --verify jmeter-2.13.tar.gz.asc

Java version

JMeter 2.13 requires Java 6 or later

PGP/GPG Signatures

All of the release distribution packages have been digitally signed (using PGP or GPG) by the ASF committers that constructed them. There will be an accompanying distribution.asc file in the same directory as the distribution. The PGP/GPG keys can be found at the MIT key repository and within this project's KEYS file at

Always signatures to validate package authenticity, e.g.,
$ pgpk -a KEYS
$ pgpv apache-jmeter-2.13.tgz.asc
$ pgp -ka KEYS
$ pgp apache-jmeter-2.13.tgz.asc
$ gpg --verify apache-jmeter-2.13.tgz.asc

We also offer MD5 hashes as an alternative to validate the integrity of the downloaded files. See the distribution.md5 files.
Note that such hashes are only useful as a check that the file has been downloaded OK. They do not provide any guarantee that the downloaded file is authentic.
