identity of things (IDoT)

With the Identity of Things (IDoT), objects in the Internet of Things (IoT) are uniquely identified by a Unique Identifier

(UID). Thanks to the unique identifiers, the devices, objects and components can communicate with each other. The UIDs are also used to assign metadata to the objects, which together with the UID uniquely define the identity of the objects. The Unique Identifier makes each object in the Internet of Things uniquely addressable. In order to ensure secure and efficient communication between IoT objects, further information about the object is crucial. For example, their lifetime and lifecycle, the latter of which can be extremely short and can be based on the time it takes to send data packets. Or the relationships that exist between the different objects of an IoT, or the type of authentication, since certain Multifactor Authentications (MFA) on biometricdata cannot be used with objects.
