With the upcoming deployment and usage of Cellular Internet of Things solutions, it is important to mitigate some issues regarding security, due to the physical limitations that some devices have such as low memory, low processing power or even low battery range that don't allow them to perform or support more complex functions. To combine and benefit from the security mechanisms that exist in cellular networks, in this paper we present a cross-federation identity solution that simplifies the authentication and identification procedures for these devices by providing a single sign-on access trait between both the network and the application layers, by also addressing a developed proof-of-concept that allows to illustrate the solution's potential.
