Jan 9 - Obama Eyeing Internet ID for Americans

STANFORD, Calif.--President Obama is planning to hand the U.S. Commerce Department authority over a forthcoming cybersecurity effort to create an Internet ID for Americans, a White House official said here today.

It's "the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government" to centralize efforts toward creating an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt said.


That news, first reported by CNET, effectively pushes the department to the forefront of the issue, beating out other potential candidates, including the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. The move also is likely to please privacy and civil-liberties groups that have raised concerns in the past over the dual roles of police and intelligence agencies.

The announcement came at an event today at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, where U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and Schmidt spoke.

The Obama administration is currently drafting what it's calling the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, which Locke said will be released by the president in the next few months. (An early version was publicly released last summer.)

"We are not talking about a national ID card," Locke said at the Stanford event. "We are not talking about a government-controlled system. What we are talking about is enhancing online security and privacy, and reducing and perhaps even eliminating the need to memorize a dozen passwords, through creation and use of more trusted digital identities."

The Commerce Department will be setting up a national program office to work on this project, Locke said.

Details about the "trusted identity" project are remarkably scarce. Last year's announcement referenced a possible forthcoming smart card or digital certificate that would prove that online users are who they say they are. These digital IDs would be offered to consumers by online vendors for financial transactions.

You need to lay off that crystal if you think that's ever going to happen. Immediately.

Russia, China, Japan... These n*ggas woulda been tried and failed at that sh!t by now.





That is..... Unless they haven't already done so already in private. Including America.
An attack on freedom is just that, regardless of the time frame.

I'm sure the IT monopolies will jump on board with this.

Another step towards Web 2.0

Is this REALLY the best BS answer they could come up with?

"We are not talking about a national ID card," Locke said at the Stanford event. "We are not talking about a government-controlled system. What we are talking about is enhancing online security and privacy and reducing and perhaps even eliminating the need to memorize a dozen passwords, through creation and use of more trusted digital identities."

I said this president has 2 minds a white and black brain. This nothing more than 1984 control over
internet because its to much quality infomation that can reach the mainstream. Obama fix the education system or create more jobs. Leave the internet alone. This makes me question why is Obama targeting the internet so he and the government can know who said what? He trying to keep tabs on internet activity that's all in case of a major internet political revolution. The internet is very powerful tool if used correctly just look at Obama's facebook account.

Lets Track IP adresses with this new internet ID then later charge a nice tax fee for internet usage


Obama to White House staff "well you know um we got all the Americans that don't like to pay for s**t on the internet so lets track these mf's make examples out of them and make a new internet tax bill. Better get ready for Internet 2 folks cause Obama acting like Frank Lucas in American Gangsta about his internet. Obama is head of the state!

Can you give a good reason why the government needs to know who is doing and saying what on the internet? I honestly can't. Control like this won't be used responsibly by our government so why should they have it.

well the new laptop I have has biometric fingerprint scanning to log on..I mean how much more authentic can u get to validate ur identity? (besides DNA) This type of thing started a long time ago people..Browsing anonymous will be a thing of the past..Every move u make, every site u visit, every email you send, and every thing u buy online will be documented under your identity..Im not overreacting and I think this proves it

On a side note.. If you people think WikiLeaks was a coincidence ur mistaken..That was the false flag to push bills and actions like this one forward..They are doing all this monitoring in the name of "National Security" LMAO..Sure..They wanna make sure sites like WikiLeaks never happen again and they are going to invade and destroy everyone's privacy to do so..
