The End of Multiple Paswords - Streamlining ecommerce

The U.S. Commerce Dept. is spearheading a new online security system that experts say will eliminate the password maze and perhaps boost e-commerce. The plan calls for a single sign-in each time a computer or phone is turned on, using a device such as a digital token, a smartcard, or a fingerprint reader. Once logged in, users would have access to any website that has signed up for the program.


What do you think of this idea?
Will it boost ecommerce? what about security breaches?

    The fingerprint reader is a good idea for security, we use this little feature on workstations in the office.

    I can see this becoming as much on an issue as already exists with Social Security card numbers.

    If someone gets hold of that one ID - you are screwed.
