The Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) raises problems for enterprises accessing resources in federations. The integrity and availability of this SDI is a prime concern for the custodians and managers of these SDI's. This paper proposes the development of an Identity Management (IdM) system for assuring the security of the SDI. The IdM system would ensure that only positively identified entities are authorised to access and update GIS datasets that are part of the SDI. In this paper a new Federation Cluster Framework (FCF) is proposed to enhance the security and availability of the SDI. This paper also proposes the use of an Identity Management Framework (IdMF) for use within the SDI framework.
