Tech Target: 4 key elements of successful IoT device onboarding

FIDO: New help on the way:

In 2021, the FIDO Alliance developed an open standard called the Fido Device Onboard (FDO) protocol. FIDO will make it easier to connect IoT devices to cloud-based and on-premises device management platforms. The FIDO protocol can autonomously onboard an IoT device without an admin knowing how to configure or access the underlying network and Internet infrastructure the device runs on. The updated FIDO2 protocol enables IoT device onboarding without the need for a password and maintains the network’s security and governance requirements.
