Abstract: The growth of high speed e/m-services imposes requirements, including: security, which fosters user trust in mobile services, interoperability, which enables cross-domain mobile service communication and wireless application integration; high administration on the services, organising embedded logic of applications into separate and easily changed |state machines| to allow new level of processes within governmental services and scalability and extensibility, which ensure that existing services and modules are not degraded and can be easily extended in new, more advance ones. This paper proposes a secure and interoperable e/m-governmental framework and presents an innovative platform architecture for complex e/m services, which integrate peak XML-based technologies.

Keywords: high administration; extensibility; interoperability; XML security; scalability; e-services; m-services; government services; m-government; e-government; electronic government; electronic services; online services; mobile services; secure services.
