Abstract: Digital identity management (IdM) for citizen life processes requires trusted relationship among the service providers and users. Current IdM systems tend to lack the trust component in particular for online transactions. We propose the use of ePassport as a globally interoperable trust token to bridge the gap between offline and online environments. The paper analyses trust attributes of the ePassport and recognizes the extensions required to its deployment in an online IdM for high-value transactions. An architecture is proposed for a network-centric IdM system to support three categories of life processes: eGovernment services, high value private services, and eCommerce. The solution is compatible with privacy enhancing technologies while at the same time creating trusted digital identities and offering users convenience.
