Internet of Things (IoT) is the new network of physical object that has the ability to automatically transfer data over a network. This paper proposes an architecture to extend the current object identification scheme in order to custom build the same to uniquely identify each object associated with an RFID tag. The electronic product code (EPC) is a very popularly used identification scheme to identify objects and is stored in the RFID tags. The work described in this paper is based on the EPCglobal framework. Our research study focused primarily on extending the EPCglobal framework, thereby defining a customized identification scheme for each object in an IoT platform. A lookup called object naming service (ONS) is used to locate information about these objects in the EPC network. Object name service makes use of Internet’s existing domain name system (DNS) for looking up information about an EPC.
