Hawaii's legislature is weighing an unprecedented proposal to curb the privacy of Aloha State residents: requiring Internet providers to keep track of every Web site their customers visit. . . .
The measure. . . says "Internet destination history information" and "subscriber's information" such as name and address must be saved for two years. . . . the dossiers must include a list of Internet Protocol addresses and domain names visited.
She introduced the bill shortly after her e-mail account was hacked and she had an argument with a web site designer.
"We must do everything we can to protect the people of Hawaii from these attacks and give prosecutors the tools to ensure justice is served for victims."
As I said, even I'm scared by this one and I know nothing about the Internet or Internet privacy.
Mizuno's proposal currently specifies no privacy protections, such as placing restrictions on what Internet providers can do with this information (like selling user profiles to advertisers) or requiring that police obtain a court order before perusing the virtual dossiers of Hawaiian citizens. Also absent are security requirements such as mandating the use of encryption.
