Experts on NSTIC: Sounds Good, Plan Uncertain
ONLINE PRIVACY—U.S.April 18, 2011
The White House has released its National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, an identity and authentication strategy that is the result of collaboration between industry, government and privacy advocates. Its release has been met with uncertainty by advocates, Computerworld reports. Lee Tien of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said that the plans now are at an abstract level and it's "not perfectly clear how this is going forward." Marc Rotenberg of the Electronic Privacy Information Center said comprehensive privacy legislation is required to protect against the misuse of identity credentials. "The strategy at this point is just a vision for the future," said Aaron Brauer-Rieke of the Center for Democracy and Technology.
