    The Internet of things (IoT) is the technology, which forms the foundation of today;s smart and connected world. The IoT is a network used to interconnect embedded devices, such as sensors, which are able to generate, communicate and share data with one another. In such an enormous network of interconnected smart objects, the identification of a specific object poses a fundamental task that influences all other functions of the system, such as its governance, privacy features, access control, overall architecture, etc. This paper presents a critical review of the prominent and recent authentication techniques for IoT objects. This is followed by a discussion of the limitations of current authentication techniques and future research avenues and opportunities.
