The proposal for an expansion of logging the Order so that it also involves open connections in such libraries and Internet café, hotel meetings sharp criticism from several fronts.
Criticism Core believes that the preliminary draft of a working group under the Ministry of Justice to seal gaps in the current Internet surveillance, similar to the pure police state.
"The proposal is not surprising, but sad, given that people should be able to move anonymously on the Internet. One can also go down to the tavern and talk freely with others without being watched," says Niels Elgaard Larsen, chairman of IT-Political Association, to Computer World.
"The desire to watch never end, but of course it's also the way forward, if you want a police state as it existed in the GDR," he continues.
Works do not
Working in the Ministry of Justice was established by the Government in 2009 and consists of representatives from the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Science, National Police, Police Intelligence and IT and Telecom Agency.
The reason for requiring identification of people on open networks is that the Police Intelligence and National Police "will have a significant investigative advantages, particularly in cases involving terrorism, child pornography and certain other forms of organized crime," as it says in the draft proposal of the Working Ministry of Justice.
But this argument gives Niels Elgaard Larsen IT-Pol not much.
"The proposal will still not work when people along with login credentials can still make use of anonymization tools like Tor, so the police can not follow people's movements online," he says.
Should we monitor your conversations?
Neither General Counsel Jacob Mchangama in the liberal-bourgeois think tank, CEPO, think well about the proposal, which still is no concrete method of identification other than that the user identification may be done via SMS, NemID or Social Security number.
"It is of course difficult to log on the Internet, and foreign businessmen and other foreigners will find it very difficult to get on the net connections via hotspots such as an airport," says Jacob Mchangama.
He calls the proposal "extensive" and believes that the threshold for monitoring the Danes are constantly moving.
"In China, people must also have ID cards with the net-cafes, and it is obvious that state we must have in Denmark," says Jacob Mchangama.
"If we follow the logic, so should one can detect all the people you meet along the way during the day and report the conversations to the police," says Jacob Mchangama to Computer World.
Adds damper on free speech
Submitted proposal from the Ministry of Justice working, thinking
senior advisor Rikke Frank Jørgensen from the Department of Human Rights immediately at the UN Human Rights Council.
Here, the UN special rapporteur for freedom of speech, Frank La Rue, recently highlighted that the option of anonymity is essential to a free and open Internet.
"If you are worried constantly being pursued on the internet, so it restricts one's freedom of expression" explains Rikke Frank Jorgensen for Frank Le Rues recommendations.
Seen in this light, she emphasizes that the ability to move anonymously on the Internet is an important tenet of free, democratic society.
