ITU coordinates global effort on harminising identity management.

THE INTERNATIONAL Telecommunication Union (ITU) has launched a 'focus group on identity management', uniting software developers and vendors, standards forums, manufacturers, telecommunications companies and researchers in developing interoperable fraud-proof systems. The aim is a common identity management system recognised by computer, Internet and telecoms systems that "reduce the need for multiple user names and passwords...while maintaining privacy of personal information", said an ITU note. "A global IdM solution will help diminish identity theft and fraud," it added, being simpler and more secure. *
