Chapter 11. Product Life Cycle

 Managing devices in an IoT infrastructure is more complicated than just installing devices, finding them, and starting to communicate with them, as we did in the previous chapter. You need to manage the devices over their entire life cycle. Furthermore, if you're planning to host an open network of IoT devices, you need to make sure the owners of each device can manage their own devices. Otherwise, the operator of the network will quickly become overloaded with work managing other people's devices. Lastly, interaction between devices and other entities must also be done in a secure manner. This chapter presents a method for how to accomplish all these things. It covers:

  • A definition of ownership of data
  • Claiming things as your own
  • Determining who is allowed to befriend your things
  • Determining who can read your things
  • Determining who can control your things
  • Automatic decision support for things
  • Transfer of ownership
  • Decommissioning of things
