It is very interesting to see, how Google is experimenting with login services.
In February 2010 our company KikuSema GmbH was nominated as one of the TOP TEN MOST INNOVATIVE COMPANY at the RSA Conference/Innovation Sandbox in San Francisco. We presented there our security app 'FabulaRosa'.
This app contains the using of pattern logins together with QR Codes for authentication between personal smart phones and public devices in unsafe environments. Additionally we presented the app 'FabulaRosa' at an event of the Information Security Society in Zurich in October 2010. The event was related to Google.
At the Exposition of the RSA Conference 2011 we presented the augmentation of our app; the new transfer protocols, including QR-Code and OTP.
The outstanding feature of the SecApp' FabulaRosa' is the creating of complex passwords by visualisation. The passwords are not stored at all; they are generated in the moment you draw the image on the screen.
The big disadvantage of many authentication mechanisms, including Google Sesame, is the absence of a "creative act of a human being" within the authentication process. So far the solutions put emphasis on the possession of a certain device or a token and of complex, non-transparent procedures.
FabulaRosa together with the New Protocols has a huge potential for all kinds of logins.

It would be great hearing from you anyway. We're looking for partner for further developments. We are convinced that only a Global Player like Google has the resources to implement and establish the potential of this new kind of authentication.
