Introduction

One of the objects of investigation for the FIDIS research community is the interoperability of identity management systems from the technical, policy, legal and socio-cultural perspectives. It looks at the limits on identity systems designed for one purpose being used for other purposes (inter-purpose interoperability: e-government, e-health, e-commerce systems), and sees the role of the market in generating interoperability (interplay of governmental regulation, self-regulation and no regulation: cross-border and cross-sector comparisons). It is important to stress that interoperability of identity management should strike a balance between the need to exchange data and the need to prevent threats against privacy and security.  

The aim of the project is to develop integrated approaches for security, virtual identity management, and privacy enhancing technologies at application level, system level and infrastructure level. A fundamental aspect to be considered when applying identity management, involving many disciplines, within all areas of government, commerce and industry, is the creation of a common comprehensive classification system, which can be shared and applied by practitioners involved with identity management.  

    1. The proposed classification system endeavours to provide managers and developers with a system to manage effectively the vast amounts and forms of information and the many issues, such as security and privacy, which identity management technology and systems engender. The classification system brings together a wide range of topics that are required to reach good decisions on interoperable identity and its application.
