Hi Ranjan,


I'm not sure to have one standard way to finding things.

What we discussed in the group was a kind of "Google combined with p2p
discovery" for things. This service might be operated by several
companies/communities etc. like DNS.


Everything has relationships that describe things (e.g. is owned by Ingo,
located in Berlin, run by DT, etc.) So you can find a communication endpoint
for the thing itself.

The beauty of a  mechanisms like this is it works for all kind of protocols
and all form of identifier.

On top of finding things we can establish mechanisms, to authenticate, to
build trust etc.


Best Ingo

Hey y'all,

Hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to bounce a question which I'm
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?
