Device provisioning tends to be tedious, insecure and hard to scale. This is compounded when more "headless" devices, such as IoT sensors that lack user interfaces, need to be deployed. Wi-Fi Easy Connect, also known as Device Provisioning Protocol (DPP) is a new standard that allows devices to be easily provisioned onto a network using simple, modern techniques such as scanning a QR code. This replacement for WPS provides robust, secure, and scalable provisioning for IoT devices in any environment, from homes to manufacturing locations. In this session, Dan Harkins, the creator of DPP will outline how it works, how it achieves security and robustness and provide a hands-on demo of provisioning a device using DPP.
