With more employees bringing their own devices and network-connected objects -- such as keycard controls and energy monitoring systems -- the digital footprint of the internet of things is only increasing. Yet the security industry is starting to develop an identity of things strategy.
Manufacturing, healthcare and critical-infrastructure companies have long dealt with the identity of things. Supervisory control and data acquisition engineers may be able to teach CIOs and CISOs the best way to handle device identity management. Determining which devices should access a network is a daunting task, however, because device identity management can be context dependent. Some, such as mobile phones, should be linked to users; others, such as radio frequency ID tags on cargo containers, should be linked to physical objects; and still others, such as an MRI machine or a centrifuge, need to be treated as a critical asset. To deal with the influx of devices and the identity of things, companies need to address discovery, asset identification and provisioning.
