The new generation of wireless networks can involve a mix of radio technologies, especially for industrial environments. As devices roam back and forth between different radio networks, it is very difficult to continually monitor the security posture and identity of devices connected to the network. Presented herein are techniques that involve the combination of a Device-Generated Trust Card and a Network-Generated Trust Card that can be used to validate device identity (e.g., an Internet of Things (IoT) device identity) and behavior using a continuous Multi-Factor Authentication (cMFA) structure.
