Identification of an identity in the web services environment has influence on personal, business, social, and government matters, and its management systems are traditionally considered from the service providerspsila point of view. In other words, an identity management system handles an activity that is undertaken by a service provider to provide and manage services and the user identities. These systems are designed to be cost effective and scalable primarily for a service provider view-point but not necessarily for a user view-point, as it often results in difficult usability such as the users often have to remember and maintain multiple passwords for accessing different services. Also, the identities are facing threats like phishing and pharming. Currently available identity management models are unable to overcome these shortcomings. In this paper, to overcome these shortcomings we propose a user identity model. This model provides user identity and service provider profiles on a portable digital device at the user-end which also makes it platform independent by implementing two-way authentication, and it protects user identity from identity threats.
