- make an image
- boot into live mode
- do things
- make another image
- compare those images
- if they match: great, we're amnesic
- if not: problem
This ticket was written at a time when there was only grub-live. I.e. install Whonix on hardware (or Debian + grub live). Boot in live mode. Test if that works. If yes, take an hdd image. Boot again into live mode. Then take another hdd image. Compare these hdd images. Do they 100% match or are there differences? Differences: something wrong. No differences: that would be nice.
In case of Whonix Live ISO if that is booted I guess it won't modify the internal hdd (unless the user chooses to install). Pretty sure it is that way. But should be tested nonetheless.
These tests are fully independent.
Test Nr 1)
Very unlikely that hashsums changed.
Test Nr 2)
Unlikely that hashsum changed.
