E-government is an indispensable part of a Smart City. Information and communication technologies transform the relationship between citizens, businesses, and government departments, which enables the implementation of e-government, making operational processes efficient and speedy. This chapter investigates the current deployment strategies and the technological solutions of e-government in terms of security and privacy in a Smart City environment; it also identifies the challenges of adoption. In addition, this chapter proposes a decentralized framework based upon blockchain and artificial intelligence to provide a secure and privacy-preserving infrastructure. The proposed framework integrates technologies to provide mutual trust between individuals, businesses, and governments, leading to a greater transparency of activity and less operational overhead. The reduction in process overhead results in lower running costs (therefore increasing revenue) and improves the speed of cross-boundary transactions.
