Definition Edit

The Identity of Things (IDoT)

involves assigning unique identifiers (UID) with associated metadata to devices and objects (things), enabling them to connect and communicate effectively with other entities over the Internet.[1]

Overview Edit

The metadata associated with the UID collectively defines the identity of an endpoint. Identity of things is an essential component of the Internet of Things (IoT), in which almost anything imaginable can be addressed and networked for exchange of data online. In this context, a thing can be any entity — including both physical and logical objects — that has a unique identifier and the ability to transfer data over a network.[2]
