Identity and access management (IAM) is the set of practices and technologies used to manage digital identities and control access to computer systems and networks.
Identity and access management (IAM) is a critical component of IoT security that involves the management of digital identities and control of access to IoT devices and networks. It includes the use of specialized technologies and practices for user authentication, authorization, and permissions management, as well as secure device provisioning and deprovisioning. IAM helps prevent unauthorized access and data breaches by ensuring only authorized users and devices are granted access to IoT networks and devices. Effective IAM for IoT requires the use of specialized security controls and technologies to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.
