Are spam's days numbered?

Ontario's privacy commissioner has thrown her support behind an on-line identity system that will be grafted onto the bare bones of the Internet to create a security layer that could kill off the nastiest forms of spam.

Ann Cavoukian says a new approach is needed to create a secure environment for businesses and web users who are now subject to fraudulent and deceptive practises, like spam, phishing and identity theft.

The principles were developed during a two-year collaboration of Internet experts and users led by Microsoft's chief identity architect Kim Cameron to create the Seven Laws of Identity.

Dr. Cavoukian's white paper released Wednesday deepens the scope of the Seven Laws concept to make privacy an integral layer in the project.
