Decentralized Identity for the Internet of Things


As the world transforms to digital, companies try to stay relevant while balancing demands for sustainability and social responsibility. Effective, efficient, and secure operations are critical. To achieve the agility needed to succeed in an increasingly connected world, many organizations are turning to IoT to extend processing boundaries, allow for autonomous interactions, and power decisions with more data. The ability to trust the identity of IoT devices is crucial. If a device is compromised or impersonated, decisions made on associated data can’t be trusted; results can be catastrophic. Certificates and keys are options, but can be complex to manage and maintain. What other options are emerging? How can trust be built into an IoT device network? Join this session to hear about work in the area of blockchain, emerging decentralized identity, and how it could be applied.
