A matter of policy…

My previous blog introduced an access management platform called ‘Oasis’, developed as part of my thesis many years ago, and made the case for its relevance for IoT today. This blog will look a little deeper into how the solution could be used in practice. As explained previously, Oasis relies on issuing ‘roles’ to client apps and devices. These roles indicate a function or capability of the client and, implicitly, the access afforded to them.
