Update Management Extensions for Software Updates for Internet of Things (SUIT) Manifests


This specification describes extensions to the SUIT manifest format defined in [I-D.ietf-suit-manifest]. These extensions allow an update author, update distributor or device operator to more precisely control the distribution and installation of updates to devices. These extensions also provide a mechanism to inform a management system of Software Identifier and Software Bill Of Materials information about an updated device.

Status of This Memo

This Internet-Draft is submitted in full conformance with the provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.

Internet-Drafts are working documents of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Note that other groups may also distribute working documents as Internet-Drafts. The list of current Internet-Drafts is at

Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to use Internet-Drafts as reference material or to cite them other than as "work in progress."

This Internet-Draft will expire on 11 May 2024.

1. Introduction

Full management of software updates for unattended, connected devices requires a cooperation between the update author(s) and management, distribution, policy enforcement, and auditing systems. This specification provides the extensions to the SUIT manifest ([I-D.ietf-suit-manifest]) that enable an author to coordinate with these other systems. These extensions enable authors to instruct devices to examine update priority, local update authorisation, update lifetime, and system properties. They also enable devices to report and distributors to collect Software Bill of Materials information.

Extensions in this specification are OPTIONAL to implement and OPTIONAL to include in manifests unless otherwise designated.

2. Conventions and Terminology

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all capitals, as shown here.

Additionally, the following terminology is used throughout this document:

  • SUIT: Software Update for the Internet of Things, also the IETF working group for this proposed standard. While this software update mechanism is designed with the limitations and requirements of IoT devices in mind, there is no restriction preventing its use outside of IoT devices or for non-software payloads.

3. Extension Metadata

Some additional metadata makes management of SUIT updates easier:

  • Concise Software Identifiers (CoSWID), Concise Module Identifiers (CoMID), Concise Reference Integrity Manifest (CoRIM)

  • Text descriptions of requirements

3.1. suit-coswid

a CoSWID can enable Software Bill-of-Materials use-cases. A CoMID can enable monitoring of expected hardware. A CoRIM (which may contain both CoSWID and CoMID) can enable both of these use-cases, but can also act as the transport for expected values to an attestation Verifier (see [RFC9334]). Tightly coupling update and attestation ensures that verification infrastructure always knows what software to expect on each device.

suit-coswid is a member of the suit-manifest. It contains a Concise Software Identifier (CoSWID) as defined in [I-D.ietf-sacm-coswid]. This element SHOULD be made severable so that it can be discarded by the Recipient or an intermediary if it is not required by the Recipient.

suit-coswid typically requires no processing by the Recipient. However all Recipients MUST NOT fail if a suit-coswid is present.

suit-coswid is RECOMMENDED to implement and RECOMMENDED to include in manifests.

RFC EDITOR NOTE: Remove following 2 notes.

  • NOTE: CoRIM comprises a list of CoSWIDs and a list of CoMIDs, so it may be preferable to a CoSWID.

  • NOTE: CoMID may be a preferable alternative to Vendor ID/Class ID, however it consumes more bandwidth, so a UUID based on CoMID may be appropriate.

3.2. text-version-required

suit-text-version-required is used to represent a version-based dependency on suit-parameter-version as described in Section 4.4 and Section 5.5. To describe a version dependency, a Manifest Author SHOULD populate the suit-text map with a SUIT_Component_Identifier key for the dependency component, and place in the corresponding map a suit-text-version-required key with a free text expression that is representative of the version constraints placed on the dependency. This text SHOULD be expressive enough that a device operator can be expected to understand the dependency. This is a free text field and there are no specific formatting rules.

By way of example only, to express a dependency on a component "['x', 'y']", where the version should be any v1.x later than v1.2.5, but not v2.0 or above, the author would add the following structure to the suit-text element. Note that this text is in cbor-diag notation.

[h'78',h'79'] : {
    7 : ">=1.2.5,<2"

4. Extension Parameters

Several parameters are needed to define the behaviour of the commands specified in Section 5. These parameters follow the same considerations as defined in Section 8.4.8 of [I-D.ietf-suit-manifest].

Table 1
Name CDDL Structure Reference
Use Before suit-parameter-use-before Section 4.1
Minimum Battery suit-parameter-minimum-battery Section 4.2
Update Priority suit-parameter-update-priority Section 4.3
Version suit-parameter-version Section 4.4
Wait Info suit-parameter-wait-info Section 4.6
Component Metadata suit-parameter-component-metadata Section 4.7

4.1. suit-parameter-use-before

An expiry date for the use of the manifest encoded as the positive integer number of seconds since 1970-01-01. Implementations that use this parameter MUST use a 64-bit internal representation of the integer. Used with Section 5.1.

4.2. suit-parameter-minimum-battery

This parameter sets the minimum battery level in mWh. This parameter is encoded as a positive integer. Used with suit-condition-minimum-battery (Section 5.3).

4.3. suit-parameter-update-priority

This parameter sets the priority of the update. This parameter is encoded as an integer. It is used along with suit-condition-update-authorized (Section 5.4) to ask an application for permission to initiate an update. This does not constitute a privilege inversion because an explicit request for authorization has been provided by the Update Authority in the form of the suit-condition-update-authorized command.

Applications MAY define their own meanings for the update priority. For example, critical reliability and vulnerability fixes might be given negative numbers, while bug fixes might be given small positive numbers, and feature additions might be given larger positive numbers, which allows an application to make an informed decision about whether and when to allow an update to proceed.

4.4. suit-parameter-version

Indicates allowable versions for the specified component. One version comparison can be made with each suit-parameter-version. This parameter is compared with version asserted by the current component when suit-condition-version (Section 5.5) is invoked. The current component may assert the current version in many ways, including storage in a parameter storage database, in a metadata object, or in a known location within the component itself.

Each suit-parameter-version contains a comparison operator and a version, according to the following CDDL:

SUIT_Parameter_Version_Match = [

The comparison type can be:

  • Greater.

  • Greater or Equal.

  • Equal.

  • Lesser or Equal.

  • Lesser.

The version comparison value is encoded as a CBOR list of integers. Comparisons are done on each integer in sequence. Comparison stops after all integers in the list defined by the manifest have been consumed OR after an non-equal comparison has occurred. For example, if the manifest defines a comparison, "Equal [1]", then this will match all version sequences starting with 1. If a manifest defines both "Greater or Equal [1,0]" and "Lesser [1,10]", then it will match versions 1.0.x up to, but not including 1.10.

suit-parameter-version is OPTIONAL to implement.

4.5. suit-parameter-version Semantic Versioning encoding guidelines

The encoded versions SHOULD be semantic versions (See [semver]). For example,

  • 1.2.3 = [1,2,3].

  • 1.2-rc.3 = [1,2,-1,3].

  • 1.2-beta = [1,2,-2].

  • 1.2-alpha = [1,2,-3].

Versions SHOULD be encoded according to the following rules:

  1. Positive integers (and 0) represent the numeric elements of the semantic version

  2. A maximum of three positive integers (or 0s) SHOULD be used.

  3. The first element MUST be 0 or a positive integer

  4. Negative integers represent pre-release indicators.

While [semver] allows a build number, it mandates that the build number is ignored. Because suit-parameter-version exists solely to enable the Manifest Processor to make a decision about version compatibility, build numbers SHOULD NOT be included.

In [semver],

  1. The first integer represents the major number. This indicates breaking changes to the component.

  2. The second integer represents the minor number. This is typically reserved for new features or large, non-breaking changes.

  3. The third integer is the patch version. This is typically reserved for bug fixes.

A pre-release indicator MAY be inserted anywhere in the list, except at element 0. The pre-release indicator is encoded as:

  • -1: Release Candidate

  • -2: Beta

  • -3: Alpha

This allows these releases to compare correctly with final releases. For example, Version 2.0, RC1 should be lower than Version 2.0.0 and higher than any Version 1.x. By encoding RC as -1, this works correctly: [2,0,-1,1] compares as lower than [2,0,0]. Similarly, beta (-2) is lower than RC and alpha (-3) is lower than RC.

4.6. suit-parameter-wait-info

suit-directive-wait (Section 5.6) directs the manifest processor to pause until a specified event occurs. The suit-parameter-wait-info encodes the parameters needed for the directive.

The exact implementation of the pause is implementation-defined. For example, this could be done by blocking on a semaphore, registering an event handler and suspending the manifest processor, polling for a notification, or aborting the update entirely, then restarting when a notification is received.

suit-parameter-wait-info is encoded as a map of wait events. When ALL wait events are satisfied, the Manifest Processor continues. The wait events currently defined are described in the following table.

Table 2
Name Encoding Description
suit-wait-event-authorization int Same as suit-parameter-update-priority
suit-wait-event-power int Wait until power state
suit-wait-event-network int Wait until network state
suit-wait-event-other-device-version See below Wait for other device to match version
suit-wait-event-time uint Wait until time (seconds since 1970-01-01)
suit-wait-event-time-of-day uint Wait until seconds since 00:00:00 Local Time
suit-wait-event-time-of-day-utc uint Wait until seconds since 00:00:00 UTC
suit-wait-event-day-of-week uint Wait until days since Sunday Local Time
suit-wait-event-day-of-week-utc uint Wait until days since Sunday UTC

suit-wait-event-other-device-version reuses the encoding of suit-parameter-version-match. It is encoded as a sequence that contains an implementation-defined bstr identifier for the other device, and a list of one or more SUIT_Parameter_Version_Match.

4.7. suit-parameter-component-metadata

In some instances, a system may need to know the file metadata for a component. This metadata can include:

  • creator

  • creation time

  • modification time

  • default permissions (rwx)

  • a map of user/permission pairs

  • a map of role/permission pairs

  • a map of group/permission pairs

  • file type

Component metadata is applied at time of fetch, copy, or write; see [I-D.ietf-suit-manifest], sections,, Therefore, the component metadata parameter must be set in advance of the component being fetched, copied into, or written.

4.7.1. Creator

Sometimes, management of file systems requires that the creator of each file is correctly recorded. Because the default creator of files will be the update agent, this can obscure the actual creator of each file. The Creator metadata element allows overriding the default behaviour and setting the correct creator.

The creator is defined as follows:

SUIT_meta_actor_id = UUID_Tagged / bstr / str / int
UUID_Tagged = #6.37(bstr)

The actor ID can be whatever is most appropriate for any given system. For example, the actor ID might be a string (e.g., username), integer (e.g., POSIX userid), or UUID (e.g., TEEP TA UUID).

4.7.2. Creation & Modification Time

The creation and modification times are defined by CBOR time types. These are defined in [RFC8949], Section 3.4.2. The CBOR tag is REQUIRED when either creation or modification time are provided.

suit-meta-modification-time => #6.1(uint)
suit-meta-creation-time => #6.1(uint)

4.7.3. Component Default Permissions

Typical permissions management systems require read, write, and execute permissions that are applied to all users who do not have their own explicit permissions. These are the default permissions for the current component. Default permissions are described by the following CDDL:

SUIT_meta_permissions = uint .bits SUIT_meta_permission_bits
SUIT_meta_permission_bits = &(
    r: 2, w: 1, x: 0,
    * $$SUIT_meta_permission_bits_extensions

4.7.4. User, Role, Group permissions

Many filesystems have users and groups. Additionally some have roles. Actors that have these associations can have specific permissions associated with them for each component. Each of these sets of permissions is defined the same way: with a map of actor identifiers to permissions.

SUIT_meta_permission_map = {
    + SUIT_meta_actor_id => SUIT_meta_permissions

The SUIT_meta_actor_id is the same as defined for Creator, Section 4.7.1.

4.7.5. File Type

File Type typically identifies whether a file is a directory, regular file, or symbolic link. If not specified, File Type defaults to regular file.

This enables specific management operations for SUIT command sequences:

  • To create a directory

    • Set the Component Index to the Component Identifier of the directory to be created

    • Set the Component metadata, including the file type for directory

    • Set suit-parameter-content to an empty bstr

    • Invoke suit-directive-write

  • To create a symbolic link

    • Set the Component Index to the Component Identifier of the link to be created

    • Set the Component metadata, including the file type for symbolic link

    • Set suit-parameter-content to the link target

    • Invoke suit-directive-write

For example, the following Payload Fetch & Install sequences will create a new /usr/local/bin directory, download https://cdn.example/example3.bin into a new file: /usr/local/bin/example3, then create a symlink at /usr/bin/example that points to /usr/local/bin/example3.

  • Common has components for:

    • /usr/bin/example

    • /usr/local/bin

    • /usr/local/bin/example3

  • Payload fetch:

    • set component index = 1

    • set parameters:

      • content = h''

      • metadata = {file-type: directory}

    • write

    • set component index = 2

    • set URI = "https://cdn.example/example3.bin"

    • fetch

    • condition image digest

  • Install:

    • set component index = 0

    • set parameters:

      • content = "/usr/local/bin/example3"

      • metadata = {file-type: symlink}

    • write

5. Extension Commands

The following table defines the semantics of the commands defined in this specification in the same way as in the Abstract Machine Description, Section 6.4, of [I-D.ietf-suit-manifest].

Table 3
Command Name CDDL Identifier Semantic of the Operation
Use Before suit-condition-use-before assert(now() < current.params[use-before])
Check Image Not Match suit-condition-image-not-match assert(not binary-match(digest(current), current.params[digest]))
Check Minimum Battery suit-condition-minimum-battery assert(battery >= current.params[minimum-battery])
Check Update Authorized suit-condition-update-authorized assert( isAuthorized( current.params[priority]))
Check Version suit-condition-version assert(version_check(current, current.params[version]))
Wait For Event suit-directive-wait until event(arg), wait
Override Multiple suit-directive-override-multiple components[i].params[k] := v for-each k,v in d for-each i,d in arg
Copy Params suit-directive-copy-params current.params[k] = components[i].params[k] for k in l for i,l in arg

5.1. suit-condition-use-before

Verify that the current time is BEFORE the specified time. suit-condition-use-before is used to specify the last time at which an update should be installed. The recipient evaluates the current time against the suit-parameter-use-before parameter (Section 4.1), which must have already been set as a parameter, encoded as seconds after 1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC. Timestamp conditions MUST be evaluated in 64 bits, regardless of encoded CBOR size. suit-condition-use-before is OPTIONAL to implement.

5.2. suit-condition-image-not-match

Verify that the current component does not match the suit-parameter-image-digest (Section of [I-D.ietf-suit-manifest]). If no digest is specified, the condition fails. suit-condition-image-not-match is OPTIONAL to implement.

5.3. suit-condition-minimum-battery

suit-condition-minimum-battery provides a mechanism to test a Recipient's battery level before installing an update. This condition is primarily for use in primary-cell applications, where the battery is only ever discharged. For batteries that are charged, suit-directive-wait is more appropriate, since it defines a "wait" until the battery level is sufficient to install the update. suit-condition-minimum-battery is specified in mWh. suit-condition-minimum-battery is OPTIONAL to implement. suit-condition-minimum-battery consumes suit-parameter-minimum-battery (Section 4.2).

5.4. suit-condition-update-authorized

Request authorization from the application and fail if not authorized. This can allow a user to decline an update. suit-parameter-update-priority (Section 4.3) provides an integer priority level that the application can use to determine whether or not to authorize the update. Priorities are application defined. suit-condition-update-authorized is OPTIONAL to implement.

5.5. suit-condition-version

suit-condition-version allows comparing versions of firmware. Verifying image digests is preferred to version checks because digests are more precise. suit-condition-version examines a component's version against the version info specified in suit-parameter-version (Section 4.4).

5.6. suit-directive-wait

suit-directive-wait directs the manifest processor to pause until a specified event occurs. Some possible events include:

  1. Authorization

  2. External power

  3. Network availability

  4. Other device firmware version

  5. Time

  6. Time of day

  7. Day of week

5.7. suit-directive-override-multiple

This directive enables setting parameters for multiple components at the same time. This allows a small reduction in encoding overhead:

  • without override-multiple, the encoding for each component consists of:

    • set-component-index (2 bytes)

    • override-parameters (1 byte + parameter map)

  • with override-multiple, the encoding for each component consists of:

    • the component index key (1 byte)

    • the parameter map

Override-multiple requires the command (1-2 bytes) and one additional map to hold the parameter sets (1 byte). For one component, there is no savings. For multiple components, there is an encoding savings of 2 bytes per component.

Proper structuring of code should ensure that override-multiple follows a code-path nearly identical to set-component-index + override-parameters.

This command is purely an encoding alias for set-component-index and override-parameters. The component index is set to the last component listed in the override-multiple argument when override-multiple completes.

The following CDDL defines the argument for suit-directive-override-multiple:

CDDL SUIT_Override_Mult_Arg = { uint => {+ $$SUIT_Parameters} }

5.8. suit-directive-copy-params

suit-directive-copy-params enables a manifest author to specify one or more components to copy parameters from, and a list of parameters to copy from each specified source component.

The behaviour is exactly the same as override parameters, but with parameter values defined in existing components. Parameters are only copied between identical keys (no copying from URI to digest, for example).

For each entry in the map, the manifest processor sets the source component to be the component identified by the index contained in the map key. For each parameter identified in the copy list, the manifest processor copies the parameter from the source component to the current component.

The following CDDL defines the argument for suit-directive-copy-params:

CDDL SUIT_Directive_Copy_Params = { uint => [+ int] }

6. IANA Considerations

IANA is requested to:

  • allocate key 14 in the SUIT Envelope registry for suit-coswid

  • allocate key 14 in the SUIT Manifest registry for suit-coswid

  • allocate key 7 in the SUIT Component Text registry for suit-text-version-required

  • allocate the commands and parameters as shown in the following tables

6.1. SUIT Commands
