Parent Track


In the last decade, the number of devices connected to the internet has increased sharply. More than 50 billion interconnected devices will be used by 2022. With the rising interconnectivity, the IoT and Industrial IoT devices require their own identity which can prove challenging for current IAM solutions implemented in enterprises. Not only connections between a user and the device but also among the devices themselves will have to be securely managed. Building frameworks where user-device, device-user, and device-device interactions will be treated in a similar manner, will be necessary. Could Blockchain be a solution?

Integrating Robotic Process Automation can significantly reduce costs of IAM and improve its efficiency and could be an answer to managing a huge number of identities of ever increasing 'things' on the internet. Data Privacy, security, scalability and effectiveness remain a concern.

In this session, speakers will discuss the possible RPA implementation in IAM and present best-case talks for managing the identity of things.

After attending this track you will be able to:

  • Discuss how can Robotic Process Automation be possible implemented in IAM and the feasibility of its implementation.
  • Understand the development of 5G IAM architecture.
  • Explain the term NPE (Non-Human Entity); how it differs and coincides with the Human entity and how it can influence the future solutions.
  • Explain the Identity of Things (IDoT) and the relationships of networked entities.

You can get 2 CPEs for this track.


The Development of a 5G IAM Architecture

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Time: 11:00-12:00

The Development of a 5G IAM Architecture
Bjorn Hjelm, Verizon

With the emergence of a more digitized world combined with the prospect of a broadband communication of 20 Gbps, the development of an Identity and Access Layer in 5G started with the vision of user’s identities in the center of a new value proposition. Identity as an abstraction layer in 5G bridges across domains, cross access technologies and between the network and Internet services focused on enhanced user experience as well as higher personalization of services that can only be...

Identity Across Things (and Individuals)

50 Billion Identities: The Future of Humans, Corporations and Smart Things

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Time: 12:00-13:00

50 Billion Identities: The Future of Humans, Corporations and Smart Things
Heather Vescent, The Purple Tornado

By 2021, it's estimated there will be more than 25 billion IoT devices with identity. There are over 180 million businesses globally – all of these are registered with governments and have identities in financial institutions. And there are 7.6 billion humans interacting with these corporations and IoT devices in complex ways.  This talk is based on research funded by the DHS Science and Technology to explore the impact of NPE (non-person entity) identity on areas of critical...

Panel: IAM of Things
Ralf Kn√∂ringer, Atos • Robert Lapes, Independent Identity Architect & Analyst • Bertrand Carlier, Wavestone • Tom Hofmann, Eniwa AG • Heather Vescent, The Purple Tornado • Tomi Ruotimo, Houston Inc.

The number of IoT devices is increasing rapidly. These interconnected machines must be accessible from different networks by other machines and/or by people. Furthermore, IoT devices can be vulnerable to attacks and be the desired target on a company or home network. Considering these challenges, it is essential that the companies are deploying scalable and purpose-designed IAM solutions for these machines and that the IoT devices are designed with IAM and security capacities in mind. ...
