This paper presents the research results on reliable enforcement of security policies for electronic services deployment in small and medium sized governmental organizations (SMGOs). Motivation for this research has been the fact that SMGOs interact frequently with citizens and/or businesses, to offer paper-based and electronic services which utilize a limited number of resources, such as employees and funds. SMGOs interact also with each other, in local or cross-border transactions, exchanging information on behalf of citizens, businesses or the organization itself. There is an obvious need for a secure, interoperable and cost-effective eGovernment platform that addresses the requirements of SMGOs, improves the quality of the citizens’ involvement and strengthens the fundamental structure of these organizations.
