The number of non-human identities is increasing dramatically. These can be IoT devices, bots, service accounts, all interconnected within a network and using keys and certificates. The authentication procedure of machine identities is highly automated and very often the level of security is lower than for human authentication. This poses a security risk to an enterprise network and can lead to breaches and hacks, if not treated with adequate care. Therefore, it is necessary for good enterprise IAM hygiene to cover the identities of device accounts and not only those belonging to humans. A thorough understanding of the risks associated with non-human identities is essential for enabling fully secure access.

Using W3C Verifiable Credentials to Strongly Identify and Authorise Entities in a Global IoT Infrastructure
Prof. Dr. David Chadwick, University of Kent

W3C Verifiable Credentials are the latest paradigm in identity management. They have the potential to transform the identity landscape. In this presentation, we will describe an application-independent Verifiable Credentials Identity Layer that was conceived at the University of Kent and its application to global IoT infrastructures that are being developed by Iotic Labs. The simple to use API connects to a corporate identity database such as LDAP, to Internet-wide web services and devices...

Secure Vehicle Data Exchanges and Federate Driver Identities With OpenID Connect (OIDc)
Fulup Ar Foll,

Modern cars contain hundreds of SoCs (System on Chips). A car typically runs thirty to fifty million lines of code and produces over ten thousands of data messages per second. Most of those SoCs are very specialized and embed only limited resources. They communicate on multiple specialized and non-compatible networks (CAN, Lin, Ethernet, MOST, ...). Nevertheless, the software they run must be secured, regardless of where the applications are running: on the edge (inside the car), in the near...

When Good Bots Go Bad: Countering Exploits Using Non-Human Identities
Alex Weinert, Microsoft

Digital transformation requires that companies process more data with more apps involving more services. IoT, services and rich apps provide the vulnerable interfaces between business process and customers, while legacy apps hold the door open for outdated protocols and vulnerable on-prem systems. In this talk, learn of the latest cutting edge exploits impacting organizations like yours, how to secure your service and device identities, and how a good develop process can...
