Latest id_ref

This is the current pointer reference to the CVEs. For example, if this point was 1000, and there eas 1020 total current CVEs, that means there would be 10 CVEs that would be used to notify. Once notification is complete, then Latest id_ref would be 1020, and the previous id_ref would be 1000.
