I found the following on cnet:

  Internet Profiles Corporation (I/Pro) today kicked off a  service that
  should make it easier for users to get on Web sites that require them to
  fill out membership or registration  forms. 
  
  The company's I/Code universal registration system lets  users register
  all their demographic information once and once only at I/Pro's own Web
  site. Users are then issued a special  code that will give them
  automatic access to any membership-based Web site that is participating
  in the I/Code service.  This means that I/Code users are freed from the
  hassle of filling out multiple registration forms and having to remember
  multiple passwords, I/Pro officials said. 
  
  I/Pro said that as of today more than 20 Web sites are  participating in
  the service, including Duracell, Pathfinder, Quote.Com, Sony, and Visa. 


The company is at http://www.icode.com.

To see the data they are collecting, look at their registration form at:

Imagine the implications when major Web sites require you to provide your
Icode before they will let you in.
