Guided literature review : identity management systems / Jennifer Barrigar.: IP54-65/2011E-PDF

Reviewing selected information about Federated Identity Management Systems (FIdM), it quickly becomes clear that this technology has an almost Schrödingerian quality to it – that is, online identity management, by virtue of potentially falling into either state, may be said to be simultaneously incredibly beneficial and terribly detrimental. A properly designed and implemented FIdM system has, in theory, the capacity to enhance privacy, facilitate meaningful anonymity, and subvert behavioural tracking. Equally possible, however, is the risk that an improperly designed and implemented FIdM system could exacerbate existing problems and, by virtue of creating a new repository of data and process of sharing, create new ones.
