Iran wants to roll out a system for “securing online transactions and communications”, the outlines of which were ratified in the late Saturday session of the High Council of Cyberspace attended by President Hassan Rouhani.
Reportedly, the system will create a secure mechanism for identifying users and service providers undertaking online transactions.
According to the president’s website, the system will be used for securing “financial and technical transactions” and can impact “social and political” communications along with online content production and distribution.
No further details about the plan are available. Some observers have speculated that the government is planning to introduce a KYC (Know your customer) verification system. However, official sources have not yet confirmed that.
