What is Level 0 Verification?

Level 0 Verification is also known as a Deposit Validity Review.
This is a process that Harbinger undertakes when it receives a deposit from a software vendor. We undertake a series of checks that include:

  • Deposits have been lodged in a timely fashion
  • Materials are up to date (in alignment with the escrow agreement)
  • Media (if applicable) is checked for damage and wear
  • Deposits can be de-compressed (un archived)
  • Encrypted files can be decrypted and the method of encryption is known
  • Deposits are accessible using the appropriate encryption key or password
  • Deposits are free from viruses
  • Sample files are tested for human readability
  • A Validity Review report is produced and filed for future reference
