The broad aim of identity management (IdM) is to manage the resources of an organization (such as files, records, data, and communication infrastructure and services) and to control and manage access to those resources in an efficient and accurate way. Consequently, identity management is both a technical and process-orientated concept. The concept of IdM has begun to be applied in identities-related applications in enterprises, governments, and Web services since 2002. As the integration of heterogeneous wireless networks becomes a key issue in towards the next generation (NG) networks, IdM will be crucial to the success of NG wireless networks. A number of issues, such as mobility management, multi-provider and securities require the corresponding solutions in terms of user authentication, access control, and so forth. IdM in NG wireless networks is about managing the digital identity of a user and ensuring that users have fast, reliable, and secure access to distributed resources and services of an next generation network (NGN) and the associated service providers, across multiple systems and business contexts.
