At a time Nigeria is facing internal security challenges such as Boko Haram insurgency, kidnapping,  armed banditry, ethno-religious crisis, etc, it became imperative for authorities to look for ways of  strengthening the effectiveness of security agencies. Information Technology (IT) has the potential of  improving service delivery as demonstrated in many sectors of the economies of both developed and  developing countries. Critical to the utilization of hardware in organizations is well-engineered  software built based on good architecture. This paper proposes software architecture or model for  building software application that provides enabling environment for security agencies to work in  synergy in the management of domestic intelligence information and records. The proposed  architecture was implemented and the two-step authentication technique employed was effective in  making the software secured and robust.
