Digital Government Security Infrastructure Design Challenges
February 2001 (vol. 34 no. 2)
pp. 66-72

Designing security systems for a digital government's multidomain environment requires balancing between providing convenient access and monitoring permissions. Information Age technologies provide enormous opportunities for a government to transform its functions into the digital arena. The authors view a digital government as an amalgam of heterogeneous information systems that exchange high-volume information among government agencies and public and private sectors engaged in government business.

Several US government agencies have adopted information technologies and spear-headed the search for improved services and decision-making processes. These agencies aim to modernize the government's fragmented service-centric information infrastructure. The accumulating evidence indicates that electronically improving information flow and the decision-making process provides increased efficiency, streamlined functionalities, and more effective use of government resources.
