There are several Identity Meta Systems emerging in the identity management field, such as CardSpace and Higgins Trust Framework. The goal of an Identity Meta System (IMetS) is to integrate existing or new Identity Management System (IMS) to provide users with seamless interoperability and a consistent user experience. IMetS is a complex system that tries to integrate the already complicated IMS services. With such a complex system, we need a way to assess IMetS in order to determine how well an IMetS integrates the various IMS services. However, as IMetS is a rela- tively new concept, there is no framework to identify the properties that an ideal IMetS should have. The contribution of this paper is to introduce the Layered Identity Infrastructure Model (LIIM) that can be used as a framework to assess IMetS. In addition, the LIIM framework can also be used to identify the missing components of an IMetS, to guide and improve the design of an existing IMetS, to serve as a design benchmark for a new IMetS, as well as to aid the understanding of a complicated IMetS.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
