ABSTRACT


With the rapid growth of the digital information and internet technology, more and more
govern
ments in the world are seeking to take this technology advantage to improve their
service levels dramatically, reduce the cost and time of paper
-
based processes and ensure
maximum involvement of their citizens. Because of the vulnerability of the online se
rvice
and transaction, security is top of the e
-
Government agenda to enable on
-
line transaction
without compromising the privacy of sensitive information on citizens and businesses.
Before offering an e

service, an analysis related to security threats and
risk control must be
performed. This paper begin with the discussion of
security threats including the assets that
required protection, the corresponding type of threats that could probably occur, and the
potential sources of threats. Then a

four
-
layer fra
mework
which is composed of
community layer, process layer, interaction layer and infrastructure layer will be proposed
to apply to e
-
government
. Also this paper will use this framework to illustrate the process
of New Zealand’s car

registration. In the en
d of the paper, conclusion will be given by
discussing how many tasks have been attempted, or are now being attempted
when

the
readiness of New Zealand to
migrate the existing car
-
registration into a fully functioning
self
-
service e
-
car registration system

which adopts the framework the paper proposed.

DETAILED OUTLINE OF
THE PAPER


1.

Introduction.

2.

Security threat analysis and risk control.



Discussion of the various
assets of e
-
Government based services which require
protection and
the corresponding
type of threats, as well as their probability of
occurrence.




Classification of the source of threats and their potential violation of e
-
government.



Possible methods of securing e
-
government to control risk, including securing
network, application and man
agement of security.

3.

A holistic framework for developing secure e
-
government solution.



Adopting a holistic concept [1
-
2] to
analyze

the security issues in the e
-
government
system: a four
-
layer framework which consists of community layer, process layer,
interaction layer and infrastructure layer security strategies and some solutions for
the different layers are described.



Description about the present status of e
-
government in NZ in general and the
present status of car
-
registration process in particular
.



Exemplifying e
-
government security solution by adopting
the four
-
layer
framework

to set up New

Zealand e
-
car registration and
analyse the security issues
on different layers.

4.

Comments on the holistic framework using the security model proposed by
N.
B
oudriga [
2
] and S Benabdallah et al [

].



Brief description about the models of N. Boudriga [
2
] and S Benabdallah et al [
3
].



Analysis about what tasks have been attempted and what tasks are being attempted
in present New Zealand e
-
Government.



Discussion abo
ut what tasks should be obtained when the e
-
car registration is
implemented.
