ArchLABs Logo

What is bitcheck?

  • It is a simple rust script that will perform the md5 and sha1 hash check of the ArchLabs ISO images.

Why

  • Safety. Nothing is perfect, but rust goes along way to make it more difficult for things like: out-of-bounds reads/writes, use-after-free, null pointer dereference and data races to occur. All of which, can lead to potentially exploitable behavior

How

  • To use this script, simply install it, with cargo.
//Windows Command Line
C:\Users\username>cargo install bitcheck
//Linux Terminal
username@example.home>cargo install bitcheck
//the script will install to ~/.cargo/bin
  • It is suggested that the ~/.cargo/bin folder be added to the existing path
  • This can be done by adding the following line to the .bashrc, in the home folder
export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.cargo/bin
  • Save, exit and relaunch the terminal to load the recent changes.
  • Bitcheck now supports all versions of ArchLabs currently available for download.
    • Currently, it will only check the first version of ArchLabs found within the directory tree.
      • Suggest remove outdated copies, and only test the current release.
  • Currently only two version of ArchLabs can be downloaded.
    • archlabs-2017-10.iso
    • archlabs-2017-10-lts.iso

Note: The script will crawl your home directory tree looking for the ArchLabs images.

  • When a potential ArchLabs image is found, it will return the location of it.
    • Added support for Windows Directory Tree structure!

Running Bitcheck

// In a terminal or the command line for Windows, not PowerShell. Only after bitcheck has been installed using cargo
// Linux Terminal
username@example.home>bitcheck
archlabs-2018-03.iso
"/home/<username>/Downloads/archlabs-2018-03.iso"
SHA1:	68209a4efbc005b56611f15c90cfa287bad6cb2a

Important Note If the one or both of the above is not present, after the location of the image. The image you have is CORRUPT! Do not use it, as it could have been tampered with.

Note: .torrent files should be removed before checking the iso.

bitcheck , is only intended for use with ArchLabs.


bitcheck is an evolving project, and the current code is under going a major overhaul. Because of this, the direction of the project is bound to change.
