As the saying goes... Take a page from the playbook of FreeBSD or any 
Linux distro for that matter.




In summary, a single CHECKSUM file listing each file and its related 
checksum. This is a standard layout that many tools can handle and can 
be used to verify many files in one go. There are tools that can 
generate these complete files too.

On a side note:
   MD5 and SHA1 is loosing popularity (but still better than nothing).
   SHA256 or SHA512 should now be the norm.
