Identity crisis: how Social Security numbers became our insecure national ID
Last week, the White House announced $9 million in funding for five pilot projects as part of its National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace initiative, a federal effort to establish a secure, universal online identity ecosystem led by the private sector.
Critics say any kind of top-down identification system would be a security risk and an encroachment on civil rights.

While Social Security numbers work pretty well for tracking Social Security, they weren’t designed to be secure.
