Abstract: It is shown that in certain classes of finite groups, inner automorphisms are characterized by an extension property and also by a dual lifting property. This is a consequence of the fact that for any finite group $ G$ and any prime $ p$, there is a $ p$-group $ P$ and a semidirect product $ H = GP$ such that $ P$ is characteristic in $ H$ and every automorphism of $ H$ induces an inner automorphism on $ H/P$.
