Access Control: IoT Platform Comparison from MachNation MIT-E

MachNation IoT Test Environment (MIT-E) is an IoT platform test and comparison lab run by MachNation. In MIT-E, MachNation tests, scores and summarizes the quality of platform features and usability characteristics. MachNation conducts 71 tests (referred to as tasks in MachNation nomenclature) across 9 evaluation categories.

Currently tested evaluation categories include access control, analytics, comprehensive evaluation, data management, device management, event processing, external integration, monitoring and usability.

MachNation ran 7 tests associated with IoT platform access control. The 7 tests covered aspects of user authorization, device authorization and multi-tenant capabilities.

This document focuses on access control.

MachNation defines access control as a system of identity verification and permission management for all platform-connected elements including APIs, administrator or operator interfaces, devices, stored or in-transit data, or any other platform service.

This report contains hands-on access control test results from 10 IoT platform vendors: Altizon, Amazon, Bosch, GE, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Sierra Wireless, Software AG and Thingsboard.
