US (Commerce Department?) ID initiative

State:
RAISED
Product:
liaison with other groups
Raised by:
Henry Story
Opened on:
2011-01-28
Description:
A couple of reports seem to be pointing to the White House or US Government Department ID initiative.

Mischa Tuffield brought up earlier on the WebID list [1] where he pointed to an
article entitled "White House to establish internet IDs" [2]. Later the same week
Daniel Bos pointed to [3] a Businessweek article "Say Goodbye to All Those Passwords" [4] claiming
this was a Commerce Department initiative. They certainly sound like the same thing.

Neither of these articles are detailing what technology is to be used. It seems more
like the US department is still searching for the technology. But it is not clear.
We should try to understand more clearly what this is about.
