In recent years, Identity Management (IdM) evolved into an essential component of service oriented infrastructures, where among other data, an effective exchange of sensitive data between different subsystems is an inherent part of the whole architecture. But it is noticeable that such infrastructures still lack adequate privacy mechanisms. This report uses the example of an electronic CV system and first develops requirements for the establishment of privacy-enabled service oriented architectures. Then, several existing IdM-protocols are investigated with a focus on their applicability as privacy-enhancing mechanisms for IdM infrastructures. Moreover, the challenges that still have to be faced for the deployment of identity management infrastructure protocols (IdMIP) are depicted.
