What flavor of Debian do you want to instal?
What OS ("linux","Windows,""Mac") are you using to download "Debian"?

Answers to the above questions are required to be able to answer this
question.

This process is actualy in two folds:
- Insuring that the downloaded file is properly downloaded
- Verifying that the downloaded file has not been tampered with

To do that for  a Debian file three files are needed:
- SHA512SUMS.sign
- SHA512SUMS
- Iso file
