RPKI Manifests

Manifests are currently documented by this sidr draft. Manifest are signed objects that have a list of all the objects in a repository (except the manifest itself) and their corresponding hash. A valid manifest helps to ascertain that the objects in a publication point are fresh (latest issued) and complete i.e. none are missing.
Similar to ROAs, manifests embed an End Entity (EE) which enforces the manifest validity period. A sample manifest is shown below.
