The PP is committed to end anonymity on the Internet

The Popular Party wants a debate because it considers that there is an increasingly serious and uncontrollable problem in social networks that affects citizen security and to their privacy and that it is necessary to fight against anonymity. For this reason, the popular group in the Senate has presented at the initiative of which it was a spokesman for the congress and now a member of the table in the upper chamber, Rafael Hernando, a law enforcement to force the platforms that sustain social networks to Identify all those who are discharged.

The PP proposes to modify Law 34/2002 of Services of the Information Society and Electronic Commerce and include an article on the duty of identification. ' "Intermediation service providers consisting of housing data provided by the recipient of the service will be required to identify each of the profiles and their user accounts through the National Identity Document, the passport or any other documentary document of the identity".

The proposal of the popular includes the obligation to "have the identification of the natural person carrying out the storage of the data; or dispose of the appropriate technological means to identify the natural person who has made the storage of the data, whether He has done it directly as through technological systems designed or used to hide the author of the placement of the data in the system ".

In addition, it defends that "the absence of collaboration with the competent judicial authority that requires the service provider Information on the identity of the person who may have used the service for criminal purposes, exclude in any case, the application of the exemption of responsibility foreseen by this article".

Since the PP, it is understood that there is increasingly "a rising market dedicated to personal data management" that users leave on their traces when they navigate online, which is called the "fingerprint". But, in addition, they denounce the increase of "cyberviolence" wrapped by anonymity.

"There are still no appropriate procedures and regulatory forecasts that regulate the measures or actions that digital service providers must be carried out to verify that the recorded data is authentic, truthful and come from legitimate profiles for lawful purposes," says the Proposition of the PP.

More than 60% of Internet users at some point have suffered this type of violence, which includes from harassment to identity impersonation for malicious purposes, gender violence, falsification profiles, child abuse, robberies, extortions and cyber engineering .

The State Safety Forces have to go too many times behind the offender and claim more legislative support to act. The tracking of the cybergressors "is complicated, since after them hide anonymous profiles, and they are mobilized through the most common communication platforms, such as email and social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat or Messenger "The PP points out in his initiative.

Cybercriminals have developed various techniques through digital technology. Among them highlights the one known as botnet - a botnet, also known as a bottle of bots, is a type of malicious computer program that hides inside a computer from which a cybercriminal, automatically and autonomously, is responsible for Control all the resources, servers, services, applications and information of that computer to act without your consent - with which you are able to remain in anonymity while committing penally punished actions.

There are more and more the cybercriminals who perform botnet attacks to extract information from natural or legal persons in order to use the resources of their computers illicitly.

According to the PP in its proposal, the national legislation that adapts the Spanish legal system to the Regulation guarantees the digital rights of citizenship. "The Personal Data Protection Law and Digital Rights Guarantee has, therefore, to ensure and protect, as far as the treatment of personal data, public freedoms and the fundamental rights of natural persons, and especially The honor and personal and family intimacy ".

However, despite this regulation, there is no procedure that specifically regulates the protection measures that must be carried out by the providers of digital services with the purpose that they guarantee the lawful ownership of digital profiles, according to complaint The PP
