Summary 0001284: The sense of "checksum" test is too narrow.
Description In the APPLICATION USAGE section of exec* functions, there's a few mention of the "checksum" test.

In cryptography, checksum test refers specifically using a hash function that may or may not be of cryptographic grade to generate a digest and performs a comparison. A better alternative for "checksum test" would be "integrity test" which can potentially include tests involving digital signature public-key verification, thus providing authenticity and non-repudiation.
Desired Action Change all instances of "checksum test(s)" to "integrity test(s)".
