S. Korea plans to scrap online real-name system

August 16, 2011

The South Korea government will push ahead with plans to scrap the current real-name system for Internet users in the wake of the country’s worst online security breach, local media reported Thursday.  The Ministry of Public Administration and Security is set to report to ruling party lawmakers about comprehensive measures to protect personal information online, including abolishing the real- name registration system, Yonhap news agency said.

The real-name system, introduced in 2007, requires people to use their real
names and resident registration numbers when making online postings on websites
with more than 100,000 visitors per day.
