   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 as well as adding new functionality.

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