Kaspersky Asks For Internet Police And Passports

19 Ott/09

In an interview with Vivian Yeo of Zdnet Asia Eugen Kaspersky stated that he would like to change the design of the Internet after being asked what he would change if he had the power to change three things related to IT security. According to him the biggest problem in IT security these days is anonymity. His solution: Changing the design of the Internet by introducing regulation–Internet passports, Internet police and international agreement–about following Internet standards”. He knows that those standards are only as good as the acceptance rate globally which is why he suggests to “cut off” countries that do not agree or do not pay attention to the agreement.

The problem that he sees with today’s form of identification – which is IP based – is that it is sometimes not possible to identify the person behind the connection at a specific time thanks to Internet cafes or hacked computers.

Most users will probably say bollocks and move on. Others will find flaws in his suggestion. If you look at real life examples you will notice for instance that people are anonymous there as well. You can phone someone from a public phone anonymously, you can send someone a letter without revealing your name. You can shop anonymously and talk to people without revealing your identity.

What’s your thought in the matter? The full interview is available at the Zdnet Asia website.
