“Big Brother” Joe Biden mandates end to anonymous use of cloud services, demands official identification for all users
By Belle Carter // May 29, 2024

President Joe Biden’s administration recently announced that it is ending the right of users of cloud services to remain anonymous.

The Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security laid a proposal in January, detailing new rules of the "National Emergency with Respect to Significant Malicious Cyber-Enabled Activities" for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers. This would include "Know Your Customer" regulation, which is normally used by banks and financial institutions.

The notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) outlines proposed requirements to address the risk of foreign malicious actors using American cloud services that could be used in malicious cyber-enabled activity to harm critical infrastructure or the national security of the United States, including training large artificial intelligence models, the press release indicated.

According to the paper, this is an effort of the Biden-Harris administration to attack the potential national security risks associated with frontier AI models and the abuse of U.S. cloud infrastructure by malicious actors. It will implement the president's executive order on "Safe, Secure and Trustworthy Use and Development of Artificial Intelligence" and the National Cybersecurity Strategy.

“Today’s rule puts foreign malicious cyber actors on notice that we are taking action to prevent them from using our own cloud infrastructure to undermine our national security interests,” said Under Secretary for Industry and Security Alan Estevez. "Today's proposed rule gives the secretary of Commerce the tools she needs to address risks while maintaining the department's overall approach to national security: to innovate and do business wherever we can and to protect what we must."

This came on the heels of the government's concerns over "malicious foreign actors" and their usage of said services as a reason to effectively end anonymity on the cloud, including when only signing up for a trial.

All U.S. citizens will be denied the right to anonymity due to "foreign threats"

Meanwhile, another proposal included in the NPRM was to cut access to U.S. cloud services to persons designated as "foreign adversaries." The justification for the measures is a foreign threat, but U.S. citizens inevitably get caught up. To address a problem caused by a few users, everyone will be denied the right to anonymity.

According to Reclaim the Net's Didi Rankovic, the only losers in the new regulations are the to-be users of IaaS platforms, who will have to allow tech giants yet another way of accessing their sensitive personal information. The risk of having their data hacked via leak is imminent. (Related: Big Government censorship collusion with Big Tech RESUMES efforts to block all "misinformation" before Election Day.)

Earlier this year, Biden signed an executive order authorizing the attorney general to prevent the large-scale transfer of Americans' data to countries of concern, such as Russia and China, and provide safeguards around other activities that can give those countries access to Americans' sensitive data.

He directed the Department of Justice (DOJ) to issue regulations that will extend to genomic data, biometric data, personal health data, geolocation data, financial data and certain kinds of personal identifiers. DOJ was also instructed to release rules that will establish greater protection of sensitive government-related data, including geolocation information on sensitive government sites and information about military members.

Meanwhile, Biden asked the DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to work together to set high-security standards to prevent access by countries concerned about Americans' data through other commercial means, such as data available via investment, vendor and employment relationships.

The Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs and DHS help ensure that federal grants, contracts and awards are not used to facilitate access to Americans’ sensitive health data by countries of concern, including via companies located in the United States.

The press release also indicated that the Committee for the Assessment of Foreign Participation in the United States Telecommunications Services Sector should consider the threats to Americans' sensitive personal data in its reviews of submarine cable licenses. These activities do not stop the flow of information necessary for financial services activities or impose measures aimed at a broader decoupling of the substantial consumer, economic, scientific and trade relationships that the U.S. has with other countries.
