Abstract:Backed by a variety of research in online trust, this paper presents a conceptual framework for a system which would help to secure online social networks and, in doing so, encourage participation in them. The focus of the research examines current identity models already in place and compares them to the general body of identity theory. All of the presiding information is examined within the context of what will be called the “dimensions of identity.” With these dimensions defined, developers of online identity can have a more optimistic expectation for an interoperable identity system that supports the social capabilities of the internet. The resulting conceptual framework provided here is meant to serve as a component of a larger effort – the identity ecosystem – in which multiple parties collaborate in ensuring the integrity of the internet and its users.
