OpenBSD does provide hash keys to verify the integrity of the ISO files you download when you make your media for OpenBSD 6.1. That is what I did when I burned the OpenBSD 6.1 AMD64 iso to a DVD.

Please describe how you know that these hash keys are the correct ones, and that the ISO files are the correct ones. It is possible to have a MITM with modified copies if someone cares enough to spend the money/effort to do that. While you may think such a thing could never happen, perhaps the future will determine otherwise.
