Commerce Dept. unveils Internet ID plan

Published April 15, 2011 FoxNews.com


The Commerce Dept. unveiled a plan Friday to create a national cyber-identity system that would give consumers who opt in a single secure password and identity for all their digital transactions.

The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) will be a voluntary system designed to protect consumers from online fraud and identity theft -- which hit 8.1 million people last year, at a total cost of $27 billion. The problem: The current system of half-remembered passwords jotted down on post-it notes and based on pets and maiden names simply isn't good enough.

"Passwords just won't cut it here," said Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, who announced the initiative at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “We must do more to help consumers protect themselves, and we must make it more convenient than remembering dozens of passwords,” he said.

The "identity ecosystem" will create secure online IDs for Americans who elect to join the program, giving them a single credential -- such as a unique piece of software on a smart phone, a smart card, or a token that generates a one-time digital password -- which they can use to log on to a variety of websites.

Instead of having to remember all those disparate passwords, one for each site that conducts a secure transaction, a consumer would use that single credential to log in, with far more security than a password alone would provide, the agency said.

boy I sure would like to have all my online accounts tied to one ID. Its easier for everyone that way. something like 70 percent of all identity theft is taken from government records. Then I only need to make one phone call to a Government agency so I can get my new-new ID. hooray for cottage industry.

Is anyone actually stupid enough to trust the *government* with their online security? The fact that they're some of the biggest criminals aside, they're fantastically incompetent.

Wouldn't it have to be porn that's already illegal? Like child porn. I mean what can they do if it's legal? I'm not saying you're wrong I just am not making a connection.

I'll consult the Revelation of St. John and a slide rule and get back to you with my best guess.

Actually, this is a pretty good idea. I'm not sure why a private company hasn't already jumped on this.

First off, this is not your father's password. We're talking about a physical device - in your pocket, like your keys. And we're talking about MBs, not bytes. And 16-bit encryption, private and public keys. Just like real security.

The automatic "government can't do anything right" narcissism is getting in the way of actual thought in this thread. All of you need to look again - the gov't. does some things amazingly well, specifically technology. Just look at WWII or NASA.

As long as it's voluntary, I would have no qualms about this program.

p.s. Do you really think your worldly goods are any safer at a bank or investment firm that has all your numbers anyway? It's the Maddoffs and Sachs of the world who've been stealing billions, not the IRS.

Some will say the IRS does its looting in plain sight - to the degree that you agree, why would this password device matter? They already have your SS number, address, etc.

Last Pass is an extension that will keep/generate passwords. I use it for stuff I don't care about.
