Obama pushes Chinese-Style Internet ID System

Centralized government identity program dismissed as being too draconian for Communist China gets go ahead in United States.

A new program being touted by the Obama administration as a solution to online identity theft actually increases the risk of identity theft while providing the government with a national ID system through the backdoor, paving the way for a world wide web in which users will need government permission to access the Internet.

The so-called “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace,” created by NIST under the auspices of the U.S. Commerce Department, purports to offer an “identity ecosystem” under which Americans will be able to protect their information not with passwords but with a “single credential” stored on a smart card, a cell phone, a keychain fob or some other kind of gadget. This will then be used to access a myriad of data, inclu

  • Fuck this bullshit. I'll get rid of my expensive phone and internet and go back to dial up before i put up with this shit. A restricted internet is not one i'm paying full price for (or any price for).
