THE US ALSO WANT TO IMPLEMENT AN ONLINE ID


In 2011, President Obama spearheaded a plan to boost web security by issuing American computer users with an Internet ID.

The Obama administration drafted a paper called the National Strategy for Trusted Identities, which investigates ways that web users can protect their online identities.

Possible methods of creating a ‘trusted identity’ could include issuing a ‘smart card’ or digital certificates that would prove that online users are who they say they are.

They could then be used to buy goods and carry out financial transactions on the Internet.

But Commerce Secretary Gary Locke was quick to reassure people that it wasn’t a guise for more big brother government.
