Hi Hannes! Thanks a lot for the submission.

I’m looking at the documents, for now I only have grammar and syntax feedback (small nitpicks), but I’ll try to give more feedback on the contents. However, how and/or where can we submit the feedback?

Hi all,


It took a little bit of time to put a write-up about the work we have been doing at ARM in the area of firmware updates together. We finally managed to submit the IETF drafts.


There are two documents:


1)      The first document describes the high-level architecture of a firmware update service for IoT devices, see


2)      The second document focuses on specifying the firmware update description. We call this the “manifest”.


We would like to have the IETF community to work on a standard for a manifest. Silicon partners and those developing IoT operating systems have developed their own formats and we hope they can also share what they have been doing.


Feedback on the documents is appreciated!
