== > TOPIC: VERISIGN IDENTITY SERVICE

From: Eric Norlin

Mike-

you ask if businesses are using Verisign's new service ... I haven't heard of any *new* adopters, but I do know (via Verisign's Chief Scientist, Phillip Hallam Baker) that eBay began testing this service around the July timeframe, and that all indications are that eBay will become a user of this service.

I agree that the total lack of coverage of this event by the mainstream tech press is shocking ... apparently, they only want to pick on centralized identity services if Microsoft runs them.

Moderator note: There are two ways to access previously listed privacy news stories. One is to visit Privacynotes archives, the other (simpler) way is to visit

Users of a well-known roommate-matching service in Manhattan say that after signing up with the service they began receiving e-mail messages from a Holocaust-revisionist Web site run by the service's founder. Michael Santomauro, who started the Roommate Finders service in 1979, also runs a Web site called RePortersNoteBook.com that is critical of Jews and Israel, with headlines like "How Kosher Is the Holocaust Story?" Several users of Roommate Finders said similar material began landing in their electronic mailboxes soon after they gave their addresses to the service. One message discussed the role of Jews in prostitution in the last century, while another concluded, "The Hitler `gas chambers' never existed." At the bottom of the messages were offers of related books in exchange for a donation, along with Mr. Santomauro's name and a link to his site.

Thousands of military personnel facing deployment for a possible war with Iraq are the US is also confronting a threat on the home front with the risk of identity theft after burglars stole computerized records from a health care company in Phoenix last month. The names, addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates and Social Security numbers of about 562,000 troops, dependents and retirees were on laptops and computer hard drives stolen from a nondescript building in an industrial park on Dec. 14, company officials said.
