    By 2005, comprehensive, enterprisewide personalization will be achieved by recognizing and combining role management, permissions, contextual content, content generation, user and content profiling, recommendations, multi-layered taxonomies, and so forth. This will appear through integration among various enterprise portal, content management, information categorization and retrieval, security, analytics, and application platforms.

    Numerous issues need to be addressed during the next five to seven years to successfully implement a national identity policy. The first and most challenging is defining what constitutes identity, and whether it should be a single physical manifestation or a policy with any number of instantiations. Is identity merely a physical description, or should it include biometrics? How much of a person's identity (i.e., business, personal, and historical) should be maintained or shared? Given issues related to state government (e.g., driver's licenses) and current processes, it is likely that this will be a policy with numerous instantiations.
