I found read this: http://yro.slashdot.org/story/10/06/26/1247201/White-House-Unveils-Plans-For-Trusted-Identities-In-Cyberspace
There are words in the draft that are frightening. Like vendors for these certificates. Trusted Computing and it's advantages.
Single points of validation, and all the keys in one basket.
This is from Wikipedia:
In 1997, Schmidt joined Microsoft, as the director of information security, chief information security officer (CISO), and chief security officer (CSO). He was the co-founder of the Trustworthy Computing Security Strategies Group.
So I wonder who all of these vendors serve.
I would guess that to use the internet you start like this.
1. Buy a computer with TPM module and Windows
2. Buy a certificate so that you can establish you identity
3. ID is required for any and all transactions
4. Pay for antivirus and malware programs
5. Pay annual dues to the vendors above.
6. Forced into OS (Windows) upgrades as the roll out
If you do not follow this route than you will not be allowed to
access the internet since you can not prove who you are. The
additional benefit is that now everyone has an ID.
This should not be supported.
