Would the security officer be willing to sign a file containing the
hashes? It should be pretty easy to automate, and that approach made
me more confident about using some Google Code stuff.
Making the hash list:
me% sha1sum a.iso b.iso c.iso > list.sha
me% gpg2 -sa -u 0xSOME_KEY_HERE --batch --clearsign list.sha
me% rm list.sha
me% cat list.sha.asc
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
Version: GnuPG v2
iQIcBAEBCAAG yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda ...
-----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
me% gpg2 --verify list.sha.asc
gpg: Signature made Fri Dec 30 23:29:35 2016 EDT using RSA key ID xxxxxxxx
gpg: Good signature from "(Signing key)" [ultimate]
