I am in verse to know the short file descriptor of an ISO file. I have been assigned with a task to match the short file descriptor of an ISO file(to be provided to the customer) to check if thats "Kudgo Support tools" or not.
What linux command should I use?

md5sum is the command which is quite different. It checks the integrity of ISO you download and helps to identify if that is correctly downloaded or not from remote repository.
What I am talking about is "Short File Descriptor" and "One Liner Descriptor".
I have been handed with an ISO and my Manager wants me to confirm if that short file descriptor says "Kudgo Support tools" or not.
There are various checklist you draw before handing over the product to the customer.
ajeetsinghraina, I didn't see you edited your post before posting mine (I was thinking about Volume Descriptor). However, at this point I'm not sure about what you mean for "Short File Descriptor" and "One Liner Descriptor", since these terms are not used in the ISO 9660 standard specification.
The pattern "Kudgo Support tools" makes me think at the volume label, but this information is already retrieved by the isoinfo command above (as well as volname, file or even the dd command). If you have an example of what these "descriptors" would appear, it should help to clarify.
