gentoolinja,

install-amd64-minimal-20140206.iso.CONTENTS
Is a list of files that you can read that are in install-amd64-minimal-20140206.iso

Code:
install-amd64-minimal-20140206.iso.DIGESTS
install-amd64-minimal-20140206.iso.DIGESTS.asc
are two different ways of distributing checksums, so you an test your download.
The .asc file contains the checksums in ASCII.

From memory, the handbook tells how to use the .DIGESTS files
