Revelation further tells us that the Antichrist will require all people to wear a mark of identification, in order to be allowed to buy or sell.
|And authority was given him (Antichrist) over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
No one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast (Antichrist), or the number of his name. Rev 13.17 (see also Rev 14.9-10, 16.2, 19.20)

.NET is a sophisticated and far- reaching strategy that directs the extraordinary flow of personal information it collects from consumers to Microsoft or to its partners.
It has various components: Passport establishes a consumer's identity on the Internet, and such functions as .NET Contacts, .NET Location, .NET Inbox, .NET documents and others collect various pieces of information. For example, anyone who has ever signed up for a free, Web-based Hotmail account has a Passport, and every time that person visits Microsoft or affiliated sites, the sites receive information about the user.
This vast amount of information is stored in a central database, giving Microsoft and its Passport affiliates the ability to profile users' activity and to send them unsolicited e-mail.
