The following elements have been added to the P3P base data
schema. They will have the category uniqueid. You can continue
to use dynamic.miscdata with the uniqueid category instead of these 
elements. However, for web sites that wish to make more specific 
statements about what data they collect, these elements are appropriate.

    Login information (user IDs and passwords) for computer systems and Web
sites which require authentication. Note that this data element should not
be used for computer systems or Web sites which use digital certificates
for authentication. In those cases, the data element user.cert should be

    The user ID portion of the login information for a computer system.
Often, user IDs are made public, while passwords are kept secret. This does
not include any type of biometric authentication mechanisms.

     A secret data value, usually a character string, that is used in
authenticating a user. Passwords are typically kept secret, and are
generally considered to be sensitive information.
