The US Department of Defense (DoD) is proposing to create a temporary
database of people whose personal information was stolen in the colossal
Office of Personnel Management (OPM) breach. The purpose of the database
will be to identify who is eligible for identity-theft protection
services. The breach affected more than 21 million federal employees.
Update: breach victims will receive a generic notification letter that provides a PIN and tells them to go to a certain government website for help.
