At the heart of IoT security framework is the authentication layer, used to provide and verify the identifies information of an IoT entity. Authentication is the process of identifying users, computers, devices and machines in networks and restricting access to authorized persons and non-manipulated devices.
Authentication processes typically rely on usernames and passwords, which are not particularly secure, require frequent changing and do not work with unattended devices.
