EU Considers Setting Up Age-Based Authentication System [bbc.co.uk]
The European Commission is considering setting up an age-based authentication system that limits where children can visit online.
The system is part of a series of proposals Brussels has put forward to make the net safer for children.
It says children are in danger of finding inappropriate material because ways to control where they can go are "fragmented".
More details of the authentication scheme will be published on 30 May.
