How is the content checksum calculated?

Scanii API responses include a "checksum" attribute like the example below for API version 2.1

{
  "id" : "4d323e37433a76d59a78a97d5265ad67",
  "checksum" : "edbb54821bc3f5666be48184a822c3df59392c31",
  "content_length" : 1579562,
  "findings" : [ "av.win.trojan.agent-948155" ],
  "creation_date" : "2015-12-12T17:34:12.031Z",
  "content_type" : "application/x-msdownload",
  "metadata" : {
    "filename" : "suba002.exe"
  }
}

That checksum attribute is basically the SHA1 of the file you sent us for processing.
