About IoT

Things are physical objects that can connect with each other, and with other systems through the Internet, without human intervention. Examples include smart home devices, such as window sensors and door locks, smart TVs, health and fitness monitors, and road and speed sensors.

To participate in a connected system, a Thing needs an identity that it uses to authenticate. ForgeRock IoT enables dynamic registration of Things with identities, without human intervention.

As soon as Things connect to a network, they become a security concern. You need to be able to trust and monitor the Things that are connected to your network, and accessing your services or APIs. The ForgeRock Identity Platform®, including ForgeRock IoT, provides standards-based authorization using the OAuth 2.0 authorization framework. It gives you a single view of all the identities in your system—customers, employees, Things, and the relationships between them. ForgeRock IoT also lets you manage offline and constrained devices, and delivers identities to Things at the edge of your network, where the data is being generated.
