My understanding is that they're releasing both the source and the binary distribution. The source can be audited however distribution of that source (or binary) would require licensing.

One 'should' be able to download the BSD licensed source and compile it/compare it to the binary distribution.

"We will be open sourcing all build scripts so that you can verify the checksum on the binary yourself, and then verify it matches the checksum in the version distributed by Cisco."

Yeah, sorry, I do actually attract a lot of spam; I hadn't realized at first a bunch of legit posts were being held for moderation.
Let me know if you want the dupe post pruned, I don't like deleting things unilaterally.
