Gli US propongono la National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace

[English readers: you can find English links in this post for your convenience]

Dal blog di Kim Cameron apprendo che Howard A. Schmidt, il cosiddetto CyberZar di Obama (che ho avuto modo di conoscere personalmente grazie al fatto di essere socio AIPSI - Howard A. Schmidt era il presidente di ISSA prima di essere nominato Cybersecurity Coordinator del presidente USA), ha pubblicato il draft della “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” (NSTIC):

Kim Cameron’s Identity Blog: National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace

Sono contento di intravedere il riconoscimento degli stessi presupposti che sono alla base della vision di Identity Metasystem proposta da Microsoft:

The NSTIC […] calls for the creation of an online environment, or an Identity Ecosystem as we refer to it in the strategy, where individuals and organizations can complete online transactions with confidence, trusting the identities of each other and the identities of the infrastructure that the transaction runs on. For example, no longer should individuals have to remember an ever-expanding and potentially insecure list of usernames and passwords to login into various online services. Through the strategy we seek to enable a future where individuals can voluntarily choose to obtain a secure, interoperable, and privacy-enhancing credential (e.g., a smart identity card, a digital certificate on their cell phone, etc) from a variety of service providers – both public and private – to authenticate themselves online for different types of transactions (e.g., online banking, accessing electronic health records, sending email, etc.). Another key concept in the strategy is that the Identity Ecosystem is user-centric – that means you, as a user, will be able to have more control of the private information you use to authenticate yourself on-line, and generally will not have to reveal more than is necessary to do so.
