Many of the files have been signed using GnuPG.

If so, there will be an accompanying file.asc signature file in the same directory as the file (binaries or source).
The signing keys can be found in the distribution directory at

Always download the KEYS file directly from the Apache site, never from a mirror.

Always test available signatures eg.

$ pgpk -a KEYS
$ pgpv jmeter-2.2.tar.gz.asc
$ pgp -ka KEYS
$ pgp jmeter-2.2.tar.gz.asc
$ gpg --import KEYS
$ gpg --verify jmeter-2.2.tar.gz.asc
