There is no such thing. Urban legend and myth.

Something I know forsure is that it’s no myth. I personally can state that.

Sorry, you’re wrong. There is no such thing. Do a Google search for it, and the only results you’ll get are blogs and opinion pieces. No actual news outlets. It’s an urban legend that someone started as part of the normal “POLITICIANS BAD” nonsense, and it caught on.

Sorry if you feel that way, but like I said before it is a true system that will take place in the near future. Sorry if that offends you, not trying to offend anyone, but there is a reason for my question, I assure you this system is real.

Please back up your statements with proof or at least substantiation. You keep implying that you have special knowledge. Without anything to back that up, it is just mindless posturing at best, or insanity-driven conspiracy theory at worst.

The project is called Securing the U.S.A. and I have been following this system for the last 2 years. I know that it is currently being worked on by the DHS. This is not a conspiracy theory. Frankly, I find that funny. Mark my words, 2 years tops, we will be paying another fee for the rights to a Internet ID Card. And I think it a brilliant plan for the future of the Internet.

Fake site! Looks like BS to me, (no offense). Will believe it when I see it implemented.

CeeCee1976's avatar

Wow! People never seem to amaze me. Why fake?

@CeeCee1976 because there’s only three pages and the layout looks like it came from some low quality web authoring program. There is no actual info on there. This is a mjor problem for any security systme. Security never comes from propriety confidential systems. Not knowing how something works makes it much more likely to be unsecure. Look at RSA encryption – everyone knows hoe it works. Everyone understands the maths and knows the weaknesses so are able to make informed decisons about how secure it is and how much tor trust it. Compare that to an encryption algorithm that is secret and that hasn’t be subjected to countless attacks – there is no way of knowing how secure it is or for that matter if there’s a back door to allow easy access to your data. Now the system you site describes use a code to identify each individual PC, phone, server and what ever else is connected to the web. With out knowing how they do that how you are to know if you trust it which is important as it seems to me the main reason they would do it is to make prosecuting file sharers stopping Anonymous easier. If you are accused that your PC was used to commit a crime you would pretty much have no defence even if you were not guilty. This is bad.

I believe sometimes the things that look or feel to good to be true are the things to watch out for. The government needs a system like this to function like the Drivers License. You run a red light you get a ticket, you download a movie you get a ticket. Generally I think this is good for small and big business. I think it’s a carbon copy idea. Let it be, someone one is going to make a billion on the idea and the government will turn it into a trillion in revenue. Thanks for ur feed back, love it, keep it coming.

That is nothing even remotely “official”. It is some random person, named Linda Christian, who is running that website. They have absolutely no link to any kind of governmental agency. They are a fraud and a sham. They have nothing to do with anything that will be any kind of “requirement” by the government or anything else.

Frankly, your obsession with this so-called product (which doesn’t exist) and website make me believe that you are actually a spammer working for them, trying to call attention to their non-existent product. You’ve been “following the system” for two years, indeed.

MrItty's avatar

Oh, and the website was created 4 months ago.

MrItty's avatar

HAHAHAHA “This is what are business guarantees you from”. Yeah, that’s an official site alright. Definitely a worthwhile organization. Come on. You can’t honestly believe this. You’re either easily scammed, or you’re working for them. Please, out with it – which is it?

MrItty's avatar

Oh, and look – the image on their main page is your icon here on Fluther! What a coincidence!!

Man. You’re about the worst spammer in history. That’s just an awful, awful job on your part.

CeeCee1976's avatar

Spammer I am not I just like the picture.

MrItty's avatar

HAHAHAH. Yes, you like it so much you changed it as soon as someone pointed it out. Okay.

CeeCee1976's avatar

Dont want to be labeled or cause problems or attention to the issue. So if pacifying everyone is necessary so be it. But I have no association with these people, but support I will. In the job I have it has been talked about for awhile now and it will be happening soon. Is that picture to ur liking now? LOL, No hard feelings!

MrItty's avatar

Oh, please understand, this entire thread is “to my liking”, because it’s hilarious. I still don’t know if you’re just delusional, ignorant, or a spammer. But either way, it’s still hilarious. No, it will not be happening soon. The US Government can barely tie their shoes, you think they’re competant enough to overhaul the Internet? And you think this company you linked to – who can’t spell and can’t create a decent website – is going to be who the government chooses to perform the overhaul? No, sorry. You clearly have absolutely 0 understanding of how the Internet works, how politics work, or how… well, anything works, really. Take care, and thank you very much for a couple days of sheer joy. I truly appreciate it.
