With the spread of the Internet of Things (IoT) into almost all areas of life, IoT security is set to become one of the most important technology development areas in the coming years. Identity management systems (IDMSS) that are based on sound identity principles and intra-domain identity lifecycle models have an important role to play in ensuring IoT security. Due to the heterogeneous setup of IoT end-to-end solutions, an IDMS that can only support one domain is not adequate for the complete identity management of IoT devices. Devices that must be identified in multiple domains need to have their identities managed across them. The use of technologies like GBA and specific identity management systems for the IoT will substantially reduce the complexity of these activities.
