White House calls for Internet ID.


The White House Cyber Czar said he wants to make all Americans use a “virtual ID.” The ID would allow the government to instantly track what websites you have visited.

This is the same White House that is about to be given the power to throw US citizens into a military prison indefinitely with no trial.

The White House Cyber Security Adviser Howard Schmidt and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke have recently announced a proposal for mandatory virtual ID cards for Internet users, called the “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace.”

Two additional agencies had been in the running for the proposal, in addition to White House Cyber Security, all willing to prepare a comprehensive strategy meant to improve safety in cyberspace. One was the National Security Agency and the other was Department of Homeland Security.

In its current proposal standing, the proposal for a mandatory Internet ID card is meant for compulsory usage—designed to be used for all government online transactions or online business transactions that will accept it. This will make trailing a person’s online activity a one-step process as it would be centralized, with positive and negative arguments.
