Security has been a well publicized challenge for the internet of things (IoT), and even though many vendors are starting to implement better security in their solutions, the current “best practices” are anything but. They rely on two main approaches: hardcoded usernames and passwords, which creates a target rich environment for bad actors, or installation and management of PKI certificates on potentially thousands of devices, which creates massive issues when they need to be updated.
Instead, ForgeRock proposes a new approach for IoT security, where identity principles are used to ensure the authenticity of IoT devices and their communications. We call this upcoming technology, ForgeRock Edge Security. Using secure, standards-based tokens and providing comprehensive, policy-based controls for controlling access to data from devices, this is the next generation of IoT edge security. With examples from industrial and automotive IoT environments, learn how this new way of providing security “on the edge” can provide a rock solid layer of security for your IoT deployments.
In this webinar, ForgeRock experts will discuss:
- The trouble with current IoT security implementations
- An upcoming way of approaching security “on the edge”, with ForgeRock Edge Security
- Examples from industrial and automotive IoT scenarios
- And much more
