The Internet of Things is a wide-reaching network of devices that can intercommunicate and collaborate with each other to produce a variety of services in any way at any time and place. Maintaining access control and authentication and managing the identity of devices while they interact with other devices, services, and people is an important challenge for identity management which presents significant challenges in the current Internet communication. These challenges are exacerbated in the internet of things by the unbound number of devices and expected limitations in constrained resources. Current identity management solutions are mainly concerned with identities that are used by end users and services to identify themselves in the networked world. However, these identity management solutions are designed by considering that significant resources are available and that the applicability of these identity management solutions to the resource constrained internet of things needs a thorough analysis.
