My application uses various cloud storage types (e.g., Dropbox, Google Drive), and I’m in the process of adding Solid support.
One of the features of other cloud storage types I’ve incorporated up until this point is that they provide a checksum on their downloaded files. E.g., when I use the REST api to download a file from Dropbox, I also get a checksum. Note that this is the checksum of the file stored
in Dropbox. So, I can then use that checksum to test if the file was transmitted correctly to me.
So far in my use of Solid, I’m not seeing this. I’ve done my testing with https://inrupt.net. I’m not seeing a checksum in headers returned from a GET request or from a HEAD request. Note that what I’m hoping for is that this is or can be a part of the main Solid standard as I want to generally support Solid pods in my application.
