Submission + - Gibson Research proposes new secure login system (grc.com)

Okian Warrior writes: Gibson Research is proposing a new secure login system. The SQRL system uses QR codes with a separate authentication system to provide cryptographically-secure authentication and communication. Although meant to be activated from a smartphone camera, the system could also be used from a browser applet or screen-capture program.

The convenience of not needing to enter account names or passwords is quite tempting, and cryptographically safe communications would be a bonus for many applications.
