P802.1AR - Standard for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks - Secure Device Identity

This standard defines a standard identifier for IEEE 802 devices that is cryptographically bound to that device, and defines a standard mechanism to authenticate a device's identity. A verifiable unique device identity allows establishment of the trustworthiness of devices. This facilitates secure device provisioning.This standard specifies unique per-device identifiers (DevID) and the management and cryptographic binding of a device to its identifiers, the relationship between an initially installed identity and subsequent locally significant identities, and interfaces and methods for use of DevIDs with existing and new provisioning and authentication protocols.
