Lucent Technologies Inc believes it has come up with a solution to solve the problems of individual privacy on the web. The company has developed a Bell Labs research system, the Lucent Personalized Web Assistant which it says observes privacy but doesn’t inhibit the gathering of information. Web surfers can register at web sites with LPWA-created identity enabling users to return to the sites using the same identity. It is said to enable transparent filtering and provides users with different alias. A trial version of the program can be downloaded at http//:lpwa.com.
