There?s a ton of promise in ?smart everything.? However, the convergence of technology and sheer proliferation of data gathered by sensors, cameras and other networked devices make the road to the Internet of Things (IoT) a bumpy one. Our modern frameworks for broad authentication and data management create serious data privacy and security concerns today. Further, there are no overarching frameworks that map objects and allow them to connect and interoperate effectively. To realize the promises of IoT, we must differentiate between people and objects, putting standards and structures in place that connect people and devices, while enabling use of data for the benefit of humanity. The Kantara Identities of Things Group is working with industry to assess the IoT Landscape and develop harmonized frameworks that will help realize the promises of the IoT. Joni Brennan (Kantara Initiative), Shraddha Chaplot (Cisco), Ingo Friese (Deutsche Telekom) and Eve Maler (ForgeRock) led SXSW 2015 attendees in conversation about how to get involved in defining an IoT future where PEOPLE matter most.
