Comments:Concur with your earlier tiered or layered approach to Email in the intent to deter or mitigate SPAM. Internomics, Inc. is currently working on a product that enables users to define three trusted personal network layers: 1) Most trusted (family, co-workers, etc) 2) Trusted (friends, aquaintences, etc) 3) Others (web sites, news groups, and Internet based information sources) Through the use of an adaptive implementation of PKI, and using the three key components for Identification and Authentication: something you have; something you are; and something you know, mingled with a central management component, we have (theoretically) secured privacy using the network (Intranet/Internet), and placed all other communication into a seperate sandbox for automatic removal. In effect, we have killed SPAM entirely. We will be testing this theory on a product, already in development, and will be forwarding the product to various agencies for Common Criteria certification in 2005. The primary component that enables the product to function is: 1) User has absolute control 2) User gets the product (nearly) for free 3) Connects to PCs, PDAs, Smartphones, Cell phones, and keeps them synchronized with the policy the user defines 4) Product uses an advanced technique in man-machine interaction based on a principle we call, interactive ergonomics or Internomics. We look forward to working with the FTC and other government agencies, along with all ISPs, corporate and private networks, and user groups to advance the theory and product functions prior to its release in 2005.
