Description

The current instructions for ISO verification using GPGTools point to the Linux instructions using command line.

Apparently it is also possible to verify the ISO image through graphical means, as described here:

http://support.gpgtools.org/discussions/everything/1520-verification-doesnt-work#comment_32792068

This technique should be tested and added to the documentation by an OS X user.

See also the steps sent by Steve on tails-dev:

See https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-dev/2015-November/009747.html

But this should wait until the Installation Assistant is released (#9323).

Those instructions are minimal enough for us to include them without much trouble (as we don't use OS X ourselves). Are you the author of this post on gpgtools.org? Would you be happy to work with us in including and maintaining them into our official documentation?

By the way, the instructions for Firefox are meant to work as well on Mac OS X. That's why we call it "using other operating systems". But they have been broken for a while, I know.

Hi guys, yes I wrote that description on the support page. Sorry, currently my schedule does not allow stronger commitment to updating tails docu for osx.

But I'd be very happy to see the verification process updated.

Quick notice: the description has been improved, I added the important step of adding the tails signing key to GPG Keychain Access as well as additional info about an alternative name of the OpenPGP services item name to verify the iso file.

Thanks for working on this! It's super useful to have people ready to dig into Mac instructions (I'm not!).

I reworked them and pushed the result in doc/7147-improve-mac-iso-verification. Can you have a look?

Note that I don't want to make them super perfect and complete as they are likely bound to be rewritten after the discussion in #11027.
