Many National Identity Management Systems today are designed and implemented with little debate of the technologies and information required to fulfil their goals. This paper presents a theoretical framework detailing the organisational requirements that governments should consider to implement effective identity systems. Analysis is based on publicly available documentation on the implementation of National Identity Systems in the countries of Brunei, India, and the United Kingdom. The findings and the framework highlight the importance of clearly defining the purpose of the system, which has implications on the authenticity, uniqueness, and uses of identity; failure to consider these components is likely to lead to ineffective identity systems and policies.
