During a panel on countering computer crime, Col. Gen. Boris Miroshnikov, a cybercrime official for the Russian Ministry of the Interior, and Stewart Baker, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a policy group in Washington, and the former chief counsel for the National Security Council, agreed that the most important step in combating Internet crime would be to do away with the anonymity that has long been a central tenet of Internet culture.

Mr. Baker agreed, saying, “Anonymity is the fundamental problem we face in cyberspace.”
