Internet identity system created by Obama Administration


I don't like this. It kinda sounds like they're selling us an internet version of the Patriot Act under the guise of more online privacy and safety - but it's even worse that "companies, not the government, would manage the data being passed online."

Can you imagine the outcry if it was the government and not the companies managing data, though? It's like a no-win.

The government is who created the Internet in the first place, so I'm not taken aback by them working on innovations for it. I'm sure the system is intended to be efficient, not a privacy stealer, but maybe it hasn't been perfected yet.
