Internet "Trusted Identity" Program A Few Months Out

White House Planning 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.
...to centralize efforts toward creating an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt said.
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.
Details about the "trusted identity" project are unusually scarce.
Schmidt stressed today that anonymity and pseudonymity will remain possible on the Internet. "I don't have to get a credential if I don't want to," he said. There's no chance that "a centralized database will emerge," and "we need the private sector to lead the implementation of this," he said.
Anonymity and pseudonymity will remain possible on the Internet? What is that supposed to mean? As long as you are registered and Big Brother knows who you are you can 'be anonymous' to surf or maybe comment? What about "credential"? Does that mean 'approved' to publish something, i.e. a "trusted identity"? It is getting down to the nitty-gritty now. see post above, or: NWO Broadsides Internet 1-8-11 fyi
