ForgeRock Delivers Open Source IoT Edge Controller for Device Identity

By Ken Briodagh August 15, 2019

According to a recent announcement, ForgeRock, a platform provider of digital identity management solutions, has launched its IoT Edge Controller, which is designed to provide consumer and industrial manufacturers the ability to deliver trusted identity at the device level.

In this way, “things” can have the same identity capabilities as traditional (customer or employee) identities. The IoT Edge Controller runs on smart edge devices, and the company says that it provides the privacy, integrity and security required for devices to register as identities in the ForgeRock Identity Platform.

ForgeRock is providing the IoT Edge Controller as open source under the Apache 2.0 License, according to the release. Open source customers and partners reportedly can more easily build industry-specific solutions with additional functionality, and ultimately drive higher levels of interoperability.

“The number of IoT devices are growing at a phenomenal pace, so it only makes sense to treat them as first-class citizens with the same identity capabilities a user would have, allowing for efficient end-to-end business process digitization and automation,” said Gerhard Zehethofer, VP, IoT, ForgeRock. “Only ForgeRock supports integrations with the major IoT platforms to deliver employee, customer and device identity management as well as the complex relationships between them. ForgeRock is thrilled to deliver the IoT Edge Controller, and to drive rapid adoption by releasing it as open source.”
