Online ID Card Promoted by New Industry Group

The digital equivalent of a driver's license for identifying users online is being promoted by a new industry group whose members include Microsoft, Oracle, Google and PayPal, according to The New York Times and Computer World.

The new group called the Information Card Foundation (ICF) will work to create standards for an online digital ID. Such an ID would allow users to log on to web sites with the single digital ID without user IDs and passwords.
