A Framework To Investigate User Adoption Of Identity Management Systems
With the emergence of web 2.0, Identity Management Systems (IdMS) have provided identification and authentication for users in many online applications and services. Exploring factors that that affect user adoption of information technology is of interest to researchers in a variety of fields. Although previous studies have addressed an extensive range of factors related to user adoption of information technology applications and products, there is no research examining the adoption of IdMS from the user perspective. Developing a model that captures salient aspects of IdMS and factors affecting adoption is suggested and needed. Therefore, this paper proposes a model to investigate the factors that affect user adoption of IdMS. By conclusion the paper, it highlights the implications and future research directions for the proposed study.
