    We are working on a new policy for IoT devices. A new standard is 802.1AR but i can't find much detailed information.

    Is a Secure Device ID (iDevID, lDevID...) in fact a kind of (public signed) certificate - but one that never expires?

    Is there any practical use / implementation of 802.1AR in Clearpass PM known?

    802.11AR seems to be part of Device Provisioning Protocol (DPP) or Wi-Fi Easy Connect (same thing).

    Here is a video from the past with a demo.

    There is a dependency on the WLAN side as well, not just ClearPass and I have not seen many client devices that support DPP/Wi-Fi Easy Connect, which may be why there (to my knowledge) is not yet a practical implementation available.

    To my understanding the Secure Device ID does not need to be publicly signed because you provision the device with like a QR code that has the information to setup the trust. And there are all kinds of things in place to verify ownership across the supply chain. These recent videos from a hardware manufacturer seem to have some more details. If others have better information, please share here.

    Note that there is a new video on 802.1AR in the Secure Networking Tech Corner:
