Abstract: Nowadays, the need for more user-centric privacy-aware transactions raises specific challenges that Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) need to address, including the problems of managing users' personal identification information and ensuring privacy and anonymity in the e/m-environment. This paper presents a targeted, user-centric and federated Single-Sign-On Identity Management System (IAM) called SecIdAM, and a mobile implementation framework for building privacy-aware, interoperable and secure mobile applications with respect to the way that the trust relationship among the involved entities, users and SOAs is established. Moreover, it analyses a user-transparent m-process, simulating the registration, negotiation of policies and identification information preferences, and user's authorisation sessions, as integrated in the IST European programme SWEB for the public sector.
