Identity and Access Management for the Internet of Things

P. Renee Carnley and Houssain Kettani
Abstract—Organizations today gather unprecedented quantities of data from their operations. This data is coming from transactions made by a person or from a connected gadget. From personal devices to industry including government, the internet has become the primary means of modern communication, further increasing the need for a method to track and secure these devices. Protecting the integrity of connected devices collecting data is critical to ensure the trustworthiness of the system. An organization must not only know the identity of the users on their networks and have the capability of tracing the actions performed by a user but they must trust the system providing them with this knowledge. To manage the vast number of devices and feel confident that a machine’s identity is verifiable, companies need to deploy digital credentialing systems with a strong root of trust. Traditionally, this has been done with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) through the use of a smart card. Blockchain technologies combined with PKI can be utilized in such a way as to provide an identity and access management solution for the internet of things (IoT). Improvements to the security of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and various implementations of blockchain make viable options for managing the identity and access of IoT devices.

Index Terms—Blockchain technology, cloud computing, Identity and Access Management (IAM), Internet of Things (IoT), Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), smart card.
