Lawmakers push privacy standard

Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and four House colleagues want federal agencies to adopt technology that automatically screens Web sites for violations of viewers' privacy preferences.

The technology — Platform for Privacy Preferences Proj.ect, or P3P, standards — is being built into some new Web browsers to enable users to determine how much information they are willing to share with organizations that run Web sites.

Smith introduced a resolution June 7 urging government and commercial Web site operators to adopt P3P.
