The lack of intrinsic and user control in the identity management of today Internet security hampers the research in the area of Semantic Web and service-oriented architectures. Semantic Web research is seeking to develop expert Web services that are a composition of specialized Web services of multi-organizations. To unleash these emergent Web services, we propose an open security framework that is based on the concept of personal identity management. Despite the resistance from today's Internet security dominated by domain-centric identity management, we believe that when all the alternatives are exhausted, the industry will come to the conclusion that the concept of personal identity management is the only approach to provide true user-centric identity management and give users control over the management of their identities.
