Microsoft's chief strategy officer has suggested that people should undergo
mandatory training before being allowed online.
Craig Mundie, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, proposed a
three-tier system of authentication for people, devices and applications.
Mundie acknowledged that this would mean some loss of anonymity, but said
that people are used to having to present identification in other areas of life
and that the internet should be no different.
"If you want to drive a car you have to have a licence to say that you are
capable of driving a car, the car has to pass a test to say it is fit to drive
and you have to have insurance," he said.
