Abstract

We describe a generic attribute-based identity management system. It aims to support the large variety of security requirements induced by applications for the IoT. Hence, we discuss various management options for system entities. We show how attribute assurance can be used to reliably define attributes within groups of identities. Apart from enabling personalized identity and policy enforcement schemes, this provides a feasible trade-off between the flexibility and scalability needs and the policy definition and enforcement requirements in the IoT. We provide a proof-of-concept implementation of our framework.
