This document introduces Asymmetric Manifest-Based Integrity (AMBI). AMBI allows each receiver of a stream of multicast packets to check the integrity of the contents of each packet in the data stream. AMBI operates by employing a cryptographically-verifiable, loss- resilient sequence of manifests containing integrity information for both data and integrity packet payloads.
