I revised the text at the beginning of Section 6 to omit the notion of 
"local policy". I restructured and renumbered the processing steps to be 
more comprehensive and to focus on replacing missing or damaged files 
from an RP's local cache, where this is sfaely possible. I also noted 
that the CRLDP is the authoritative pointer to the CRL for a CA, and it 
is to be used to locate that CRL. The manifest is used to ensure that 
the RP is seeing the most recent CRL. If duplicate .crl file entries 
appear in the manifest, only the one matching the CRLDP is to be used.



6.Relying Party Use of Manifests

Each RP must determine which signed objects it will use for

validating assertions about INRs and their use (e.g., which ROAs to

use in the construction of route filters). Manifests are designed

to allow an RP to detect manipulation of repository data and/or

errors by a CA or repository manager. Unless _all_ of the files

enumerated in a manifest can be obtained by an RP (either from a

publication point or from a local cache), an RP MUST ignore the

data associated with the publication point. This stringent response

is needed to prevent an RP from misinterpreting data associated with

a publication point, and thus possibly treating invalid routes as

valid, or vice versa.

Note that there is a “chicken and egg” relationship between the
manifest and the CRL for a given CA instance. If the EE certificate
for the current manifest is revoked, i.e., it appears in the current CRL,

then the CA or publication point manager has made a serious error. In this

case all signed objects associated with the CA instance MUST be ignored.

Similarly, if the CRL is not listed on a valid, current manifest, all

signed objects associated with the CA instance MUST be ignored, because

the CRL is considered missing.

The primary locator for the CRL issued by a CA is the URI contained in 
the CRLDP contained in the CA’s certificate. An RP MUST use this URI to

retrieve the CRL and use that CRL to determine if the EE certificate in

the manifest is revoked. The manifest provides an RP with a means to

verify that the CRL at the indication location is current.

6.1. Manifest Processing Overview

For a given publication point, an RP MUST perform a series of tests to

determine which signed object files at the publication point are

acceptable. The tests described below are to be performed using the

manifest identified by the id-ad-rpkiManifest URI extracted from a CA 
certificate’s SIA. The files referenced by the manifest MUST be

be located at the publication point specified by the id-ad-caRepository

URI from the (same) certificate’s SIA. If the manifest and files it

references do not reside at the same publication point, an RP MUST *???*


A manifest SHOULD contain exactly one CRL (.crl) file and it MUST be at

the location specified in the CRLDP in the CA certificate. If more than

one .crl file appears in the manifest, only file names matching

the CRL specified by the CRLDP will be processed. If more than one .crl

entry appears in the manifest, and matches the CRLDP, the first one

encountered MUST be used. Any other .crl filesMUST be ignored and a

warning MUST be issued.

Note that, during CA key rollover [RFC6489], signed objects for two or

more different CA instances will appear at the same publication point.

Manifest processing is to be performed separately for each CA instance,

guided by the SIA id-ad-rpkiManifest URI in each CA certificate.

Note also that the processing described here will be performed using

locally cached files if an RP does not detect newer versions of the files

in the RPKI repository system.

6.2 Acquiring a Manifest for a CA

Acquire the manifest identified by the SIA id-ad-rpkiManifest URI

in the CA certificate. If an RP cannot retrieve a manifest using this

URI, or if the manifest is not valid (Section 4.4), an RP SHOULD examine

the most recent, cached manifest matching this URI. If that manifest is

current (Section 4.4) proceed to 6.3. If the publication point
does not contain a valid manifest, and the cached manifest is not current,

processing for this publication point stops and a warning MUST be issued.

6.3 Detecting Stale and or Prematurely-issued Manifests

Check that the current time (translated to UTC) is between
thisUpdate and nextUpdate. If the current time lies within this interval,

proceed to 6.4. If the current time is earlier than thisUpdate, the CA

has made an error. If the RP cache contains a current manifest, use that 
manifest instead and issue a warning. If an RP has no access to a 
current manifest, processing stops and a warning MUST be issued. If the 

time is later than nextUpdate, then the manifest is stale. If the RP 
cache contains a current manifest, use that manifest instead and issue a 

If no current manifest is available, processing stops and a warning MUST 
be issued.

6.4 Acquiring Files Referenced by a Manifest

Acquire all files enumerated in the manifest (fileList) from

the publication point. This includes the CRL, each object containing an

EE certificate issued by the C, and all subordinate CA and EE certificates.

If there are files listed in the manifest that cannot be retrieved from 
the publication point, or if they fail the validity tests specified in

[RFC6488], the RP SHOULD examine its cache to determine if these files

are available locally. If _all_ of the missing/invalid files are available

from the RP’s cache, i.e., each file name matches the list extracted from

the manifest, the RP SHOULD use the cached files to replace those missing

from the publication point, and proceed to 6.5. However, if _any_ of the 
missing/invalid files cannot be replaced in this fashion, then processing

stops and a warning MUST be issued.

6.5 Matching File Names and Hashes

Verify that the hash value of every file listed in the
manifest matches the value obtained by hashing the file acquired from the
publication point or local cache. If the computed hash value of a file

listed on the manifest does not match the hash value contained in the

manifest, then an RP SHOULD examine its local cache to determine if the

same file is available. The RP SHOULD use cached files to replace any

(damaged) downloaded files, so long as the hash of the cached file matches

the hash from the manifest. If _any_ of the files with hash mismatches

cannot be replaced in this fashion, then processing stops and a warning

MUST be issued. Otherwise proceed to 6.6.

6.6 Out of Scope Manifest Entries

If a current manifest contains entries for objects that are not
within the scope of the manifest (Section 2), then the out-of-scope

entries MUST be disregarded.
