Decommissioning is the final state for the Device where it is reset to an initial state to ensure that all sensitive data is deleted. Any permissions granted to the Device on the OwnerOperator network are revoked.

The DeviceIdentity Certificates and their associated PrivateKeys are not affected by a reset.

A Device that was Decommissioned by mistake can be Onboarded again as described in 4.3.2.

In some cases, the OwnerOperator may wish to prevent the Device from being used again by removing/destroying the SecureElement or some other method to physically disable the Device.
