Abstract -
The growth and rapid adoption of the Internet has greatly changed how all organizations deal with their respective stakeholders. As the move from administrative operations to service operations accelerates, e- government Network Platform is a solution to transform the way they do business and services. As well know, the E-government is a website that provides reliable content based on a strong infrastructure of a digital network, application servers and internet, an extensive database and other supporting services. It requires more advanced and secure e-Government networks to protect data from growing security threats and risks. Threats include unauthorized access to resources, malicious damage, and data intercepts. Security risks include virus, cyber-attacks, and key information leakages. Experts agree that the majority of government information leaks occur on networks, making information leakage control critical in government network design.
