Conary is a distributed software management system for Linux distributions. It replaces traditional package management solutions (such as RPM and dpkg) with one designed to enable loose collaboration across the Internet. It enables sets of distributed and loosely connected repositories to define the components which are installed on a Linux system. Rather than having a full distribution come from a single vendor, it allows administrators and developers to branch a distribution, keeping the pieces which fit their environment while grabbing components from other repositories across the Internet.

checkroot is an openSUSE equivalent of debsums. It enables retrieval of fingerprint updates online, allowing trusted verification of a root filesystem. This prevents a cracker from hiding his traces from "rpm --verify -a". If the verification fails, checkroot can download the package header containing the md5sums online. Alternatively, all md5sums can be fetched online (if you mistrust some of the fingerprints/private keys the locally stored md5sums are signed with).
