Hey y¹all,
Hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to bounce a question which I¹m
consistently getting asked around Identity, IoT perspective. Is there any
industry standard in place or in works which can be used as a common
standard across multiple identities. What I mean by this is that humans have
SSN as an identity while a thermostat may have serial number while a network
device may have a Mac ID as their identity. So, while individually they all
have their own identity standard, when in the IoT world, all these entities
start interacting with each other, how do we translate one identity into
another or how will one identity interact with another identity in a
standards way?
