ForgeOps Cloud Developer’s Kit (CDK) and Cloud Deployment Model (CDM)
The ForgeOps CDK and CDM demonstrate installation, configuration, and deployment of ForgeRock Identity Platform components using DevOps techniques.
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, vehicles, and manufacturing equipment.
To participate in a connected system, a Thing needs an identity that it uses to authenticate, authorize, create relationships, and more. ForgeRock IoT enables dynamic registration, authentication, and authorization of Things with identities, without the need for 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.
See the ForgeRock IoT documentation.
ForgeRock Authenticator application
This app allows end users to perform multi-factor authentication and transactional authorization from a registered Android or iOS device. It is designed for use in both multi-factor and passwordless authentication scenarios. It is associated with a Push Authentication Simple Notification Service module that depends on the module described in Intelligent Access modules.
