Checksum data
MD5 (Message-Digest algorithm 5) is commonly used to check the integrity of files. It is a cryptographic hash function with a 128-bit hash value.

A cryptographic hash function is a deterministic procedure that takes an arbitrary block of data and returns a fixed-size bit string, the (cryptographic) hash value, such that an accidental or intentional change to the data will change the hash value. An MD5 hash is typically expressed as a 32 digit hexadecimal number.

Here is the Checksum value for the Rational Robot Fix Pack file:
