Vulnerabilities in Internet of Things (IoT) devices have raised the
need for a reliable and secure firmware update mechanism suitable for
devices with resource constraints. Incorporating such an update
mechanism is a fundamental requirement for fixing vulnerabilities,
but it also enables other important capabilities such as updating
configuration settings and adding new functionality.

In addition to the definition of terminology and an architecture,
this document provides the motivation for the standardization of a
manifest format as a transport-agnostic means for describing and
protecting firmware updates.

This document is a product of the Software Updates for Internet of Things Working Group of the IETF.
