The characteristics of the Future Internet and the emerging technologies result in new requirements, in which user security issues are highlighted. Identity Management requirements are linked to the development of systems able to prevent unauthorized use of digital identities, information overload, and to enhance user privacy. This paper highlights the Identity Management requirements in Future Internet context, based on its characteristics. Security and privacy were identified as key factors since they determine the overall trustworthiness of a system in terms of confidentiality, integrity and availability. Further, we introduce a discussion, in which we present the relationship between the Identity Management requirements and a future Internet scenario.
