Internship: Secure a TV platform

Forgerock Things

Securing a physical object over the internet

Internet of Things (IoT) has been a hot topic for several years, but until recently it never received the necessary attention in the world of Consumer Identity and Access Management. However, with the latest iteration of its platform, ForgeRock is now changing that. They introduce ForgeRock Things; a collection of SDKs that can be used in building a secure IoT platform. This assignment focuses on integrating the IoT capabilities within ForgeRock Identity Stack to solve a real world problem: securing a physical object over the internet.

IdenTV, one of the new players in the digital TV market, wants to distribute their set-top boxes among their consumers. To ensure a secure platform, IdenTV asked us to manage these devices with the ForgeRock products.

Meet Max, Quinten and Jordy

Meet Jordy, Quinten and Maximilian – our interns of 2022. They chose to do their internship at IdentIT because the assignment really appealed to them. The assignment they got, was to secure a server with media files by using ForgeRock technology. You could compare it with a Neflix-like service that’s only accessible if you’ve received a token. Curious about their experiences? Check out the interview to read their reflections on the internship.
