in Identity Management

Bruce Schneier on Identity Theft

In an interview with “Government Technology”:

“”Identity theft” doesn’t make sense as a term. Your identity is the only thing about you that cannot be stolen. The real crime is fraud due to impersonation. Even worse, by calling it “identity theft,” we naturally focus on the wrong solution: making personal information harder to steal.

We need to make personal information less valuable, harder to use. By calling the crime what it really is, it’s more obvious where the solutions lie.”

More truth in the rest of the interview…
