The use of an Identity Management Architecture for Governments is emerging as a key concept in meeting the requirements for an effective information security architecture. This paper examines some of the current designs for Identity Management Architecture within the Australian Public Sector and extracts the common elements of these architectures. This paper describes the major elements of Identity Management and examines their use during implementation. It also discusses the use of an Identity Management Framework as a method of ensuring that the architecture is correctly defined at an agency level. Identity Management Architecture is a new research area where further research is required. This work should contribute to the further development of Identity Management models. - Funding for this case study was provided b y the NSW Department of Lands as part of its support for staff development. Peter White is the Information Security Architect for the NSW Department of Lands (email: email@example.com). He is currently completing a Doctor of Information Technology degree at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, NSW Australia.
