Unfortunately, on the Internet as in life, not everyone is looking out for our interests.
Howard Schmidt, from last June:
What has emerged is a blueprint to reduce cybersecurity vulnerabilities and improve online privacy protections through the use of trusted digital identities.
If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place.
The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) envisions a cyber world -- the Identity Ecosystem -- that improves upon the passwords currently used to log-in online.
The identity ecosystem is voluntary.
Mark A. Marshall, President of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, on Facebook:
If you're not dealing with it, you better deal with it.
The Internet never forgets.
Will not wearing a life recorder be used as evidence that someone is up to no good?
People often suggest that adding strong identification to the Internet will solve many security problems. Strong, useful identification isn't possible and wouldn't solve the security issue; trying to have it will create privacy problems.
