Device Registration to Hub?


I want to find out how a device registers itself to the hub while communicating. Basically, what is the authentication mechanism? Is there a one time token that they use for each session? What is the purpose of network id? If each device has a unique token for authentication, can I replay msgs between devices and hub using the same token?

The answers varies depending on which device type and connectivity method is used.

Options include: zwave (secure and non secure), zigbee (secure and insecure), lan connected, cloud to cloud, and virtual devices (and probably a couple others i am not thinking about)

I want to make a virtual device. The idea is that I want to automate the testing using virtual devices, manual testing is painful so wanted to write a script to play msgs to hub to trigger apps and check output.
