ITU-T Study Group 17 thanks you for your continuous collaboration with Q6/17.
We would like to share our new activity on IoT security. In the meeting
(Virtual, 24 August -3 September 2020), we adopted a new work item on ‘Security
methodology for zero-touch massive IoT deployment’. This item will study the
following aspects on enabling zero-touch deployment of massive IoT (mIoT):

•       Decentralized Identity Management
•       mIoT Zero-touch Deployment Platform Architecture
•       Security Concerns for mIoT Zero-touch Deployment
•       Personal Identifiable Information Protection

This work item focuses on how IoT devices can automatically know who their
owners are, which mobile network operators their owners had chosen, to which
service providers their owners had subscripted services, and then automatically
get access credentials from them based on the distributed ledger technology
(DLT) or blockchain technology.

ITU-T SG17 is looking forward to hearing from you and to further collaboration.
