SQRL Secure QR Login - no annoying account creation
Teamdesk team should review this alternative login method to supplement existing. It is only weeks old, but well received by nationwide encryption and security experts, and very promising. Heard about it on TWIT - Tech Guy days ago. Could change everything for us on the internet.
The SQRL system (pronounced “squirrel”) revolutionizes web site login and authentication. It eliminates every problem inherent in traditional login techniques.
No annoying account creation: Suppose you wish to simply comment on a blog posting. Rather than going through the annoying process of “creating an account” to uniquely identify yourself to a new website (which such websites know causes them to lose valuable feedback traffic), you can login using your SQRL identity. If the site hasn't encountered your SQRL ID before, it might prompt you for a “handle name” to use for your postings. But either way, you immediately have an absolutely secure and unique identity on that system where no one can possibly impersonate you, and any time you ever return, you will be immediately and uniquely known. No account, no usernames or passwords. Nothing to remember or to forget. Your SQRL identity eliminates all of that.

This could work quite well however users would still need to be given access to the individual applications they need to access.
