debcheckroot is a tool that retrieves file checksums online or from read only media. It provides trusted verification of your root file system at least as far as you can trust your Internet connection or your verification medium (DVD, BD, etc.). Unlike debsums, it doesn't rely on locally stored md5sums which can be modified by an attacker along with the files themselves. It also provides cleaner and better structured output, and can spot files added to your system by someone else.
