Hope you well.
I have successfully downloaded the ISO.
When I try to import the public key via the command:
wget -q -O – https://www.kali.org/archive-key.asc | gpg –import
gpg:no valid OpenPGP data found
gpg:Total number processed: 0

Hello Brandon, add two less symbols before the import and check if it works, greetings

Thank you that worked however now I have a different problem.
I successfully import the fingerprint with:
gpg –fingerprint 7D8D0BF6
However on the following command:
I obviously need to change my filename the full filename is:
So I enter wget http://cdimage.kali.org/kali.linux-2019.1a/SHA256SUMS
It connects to cdimage.kali.org however it gets a 404 awaiting response nothing found am I doing something wrong ?
Thanks in advance

Hi Brandon, try this wget http://cdimage.kali.org/kali-2019.1a/SHA256SUMS

Thank you that worked
When I try and run shasum -a 1 ./kali-linux-2019.1a-amd64.iso
I get the output no such file or directory how come? I am trying to generate and compare hashes
Note the original command per the book is
shasum -a 256 ./kali-linux-2017.1-amd64.iso

Hello Brandon, I recommend that the process of validation and checksum be done in any debian distro, you can also do it in windows, but you should check if the windows system complies with these tools.
Once you have performed the previous steps successfully, you must make the sum of the iso that I download with the file SHA256SUMS, you must verify that both are equal, try this.
if you are in a linux system, go to the directory where the iso files are located and the SHA256SUMS that you downloaded and enter:
shasum -a 256 ./kali-linux-2019.1a-amd64.iso
That gives you a hash, which you should compare with the hash of the file SHA256SUMS, enter:
grep kali-linux-2019.1a-amd64.iso SHA256SUMS
Finally, both hash must agree, in addition to this you can create a script in python to validate both hashes, both generated by the iso, as generated by the SHA256SUMS, in some cases I implement it that way, I hope and help you, Greetings
