Architectural & Strategical Considerations

Secure Communication Ecosystem as Part of the Life Management Infrastructure

In this session, we will try to complement the goals of the Life Management concept with some thoughts on the structure of the corresponding communication ecosystem.

The concept of "Life Management" was introduced by Martin Kuppinger defines the set of long-term goals for the current and ongoing development of numerous identification, authentication, and personal information protection systems. This concept places many new features, facilities, and situations under consideration.

The existing problems of authentication and privacy protection cannot be effectively solved without a clear definition of the overall architecture of the communications system for which these functions are intended. On the other hand, given the correlated architectural principles, a simple, unambiguous, and reliable solution can be found for these problems.

First and foremost, it is imperative to define the system’s purpose. We view it as a whole electronic communications ecosystem, which covers both the participants of electronic interaction and all the different kinds of communication problems, including the most complex and important ones. The need to solve problems of any complexity and importance gives rise to the requirement that communications be legally significant.

There are two component parts to any interaction between subscribers: information exchange and functional interaction, the subscribers’ joint implementation of a one-step or multistep procedure (sequence of actions). This means that a second step must be taken: add functional features to the resident information model that can perform the interactive procedures specified by the subscriber and his communication counterparties.

The resulting personal and procedural information model can be referred to as the subscriber’s electronic model, his electronic twin or personal communication robot and his resident representative in the communication space. From here on in we will use the term e-resident. In this case the subscriber can be viewed as the model prototype and the owner of the communication robot, the principal proxy of his e-resident. All other communication participants should have similar models.

By creating a communication network of e-residents, we are actually creating a complete meta-model of a community involved in electronic communications. This model will transfer all of the major communication processes into the electronic space. We will call this a "MetaSociety".

The MetaSociety model will allow us to structuralize the tools accumulated to date and integrate them into the system, as well as to solve the problems posed by the Life Management concept and prepare for the transition to the next level: Society Management.
