White House Unveils National Strategy For Secure Internet Ids
White House today just officially unveiled its plans for a national secure Internet id program. It has dubbed it as National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). It will be entirely voluntary and largely driven by various private sector companies, who will be responsible for verifying your ID and providing you secure credentials that you will be able to use across internet. The administration is pointing out that the system is not a national ID program or of any sort, and it is going to some length to play up the involvement of multiple credential providers.
