A Web Certificate for Privacy?

A guest post on Chinwag web site following on from my 10th August post on TechCrunch, noting that our privacy in the digital world are no different to our privacy desires in the physical world.  My conclusion is that we need a mixture of both social regulation and governmental regulation and:

“With regard to social regulation, we can and should try to foster take up by the community for a voluntary code, with perhaps a seal or badge that websites can use to show they adhere to. Such a scheme could be similar to the SSL Web Certificates that exist and which are recognised by browsers today.”
