If checksums do not match, DO NOT use this ISO. Double-check and try to download again.
You can also verify the signature of an ISO. They are also available for download as files: Mageia-8-Live-Plasma-x86_64.iso.md5.gpg, Mageia-8-Live-Plasma-x86_64.iso.sha512.gpg and Mageia-8-Live-Plasma-x86_64.iso.sha3.gpg. First you need to import the "Mageia Release" key from a MIT PGP Public Key Server:
$ gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys EDCA7A90
In response there should be one of the following lines:
gpg: key EDCA7A90: public key "Mageia Release <email@example.com>" imported or if you already imported the key before: gpg: key EDCA7A90: "Mageia Release <firstname.lastname@example.org>" not changed
Then you need to verify the signature for the ISO.
$ gpg --verify Mageia-8-Live-Plasma-x86_64.iso.sha512.gpg Mageia-8-Live-Plasma-x86_64.iso.sha512
In response there should be lines like:
gpg: Good signature from "Mageia Release <email@example.com>" gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature! gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner. Primary key fingerprint: B210 76A0 CBE4 D93D 66A9 D08D 835E 41F4 EDCA 7A90
The warning about uncertified signature is expected.
