Security, Privacy & Identity Working Group
The Internet of Things need interoperable standards from standards development organizations (SDOs) like the IETF and other organizations. This is ongoing: SDOs are today developing new IoT protocols and standards for Internet-Protocol Suite communications, managed network services and interoperation with non IP networks and devices. Ready-to-deploy IoT technology standards are rare, particularly when uniting IoT devices and gateways to cloud and mobile computing.
The SPI committee considers challenges of secure interoperation of authorization, authentication, privacy, integrity and confidentiality services with IP smart objects and object lifecycles. We are ambitious and hope to help improve security and privacy by promoting best practices to the IoT industry.
