This article summarizes, Better Identity in America (48 page PDF), "a policy agenda for improving the privacy and security of digital systems and help combat identity fraud." It's a response to the increasingly difficult problem of establishing and verifying identity online.

As well, they should stop using social security numbers as a form of authentication.
