Abstract: Dark matter provides strong evidence for physics beyond the Standard Model. Extending the Standard Model with supersymmetry and/or the Peccei-Quinn symmetry, compelling dark matter candidates appear. For the neutralino, the gravitino, and the axino, I discuss the present status of primordial production mechanisms, cosmological constraints, and prospects of experimental identification.
