An industrial device goes through many phases in its lifecycle. Its life begins with the manufacturing phase, after which it is transported to the customer where it is onboarded and then the operational phase starts. It can then continue on functioning before it is sold to a new owner or offboarded and perhaps also replaced. The proliferation of industrial IoT devices brings in more challenges for the operational technology. Customer site should be able to go through industrial device lifecycles from multiple vendors with as much ease as possible. In this talk the presenters explain how verifiable credentials can potentially help us in achieving a trustworthy and automated approach in cycling thorough the different device phases. With the help of demo that showcases prototype industrial devices approach using verifiable credentials for German Railway operator (Deutsche Bahn), the presenters will discuss the current tools available and dive into some of their shortcomings in the context of devices. This presentation also aims to bring forward the pertinent discussion of the disconnect in the world of devices and the web technology.
