    As long as it stays in the realm of using government services, I am not going to complain.
    Why does he talk about how it will be safer to use networking sites if it only used for government resources?

    Mr Locke said it would mean people would no longer have to remember a variety of different passwords to do business and social networking online.
    Also, If you are right, how does this fit only inside government services...

    From your article...
    For example, a user would be able to use a digital credential obtained from his ISP, bank or university to securely access services at multiple other sites without having to first register at each one or having to divulge personal information to them.

    Such a model is expected to be far more convenient and privacy-friendly than current online authentication mechanisms.

    "Usernames and passwords are no longer good enough" for protecting against identity theft and online fraud, Locke said. For the Internet to achieve its full potential, it's vital for the government and the [private sector to work collaboratively to develop a new, secure and more privacy-friendly identity ecosystem, he said.
    Hmm...

    "We must do more to help consumers protect themselves, and we must make it more convenient than remembering dozens of passwords," Locke said.
    I still find this line hilariously retarded. Gary Locke shut the hell up.

    This is the dumbest idea you can imagine that only a person completely ignorant of how information gets stolen would think is wise.

    The gubermint wouldnt know how information is stolen, they're completely blind and this is just an example of their ineptitude.

    ^sarcasm.

    Unless you're an identity thief I think I can tell you to get over it.

    Convenience? Really, Locke? It’s embarrassing how dumb these people think we are. It’s also embarrassing how dumb we are. But that doesn’t make it right.

    Do you have an explosive link detailing the colossal failure of the proposed system?
