IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Moving picture password technology

How will this idea be used?

IBM has an existing patent on a picture password and I have a patent on a moving picture password looking to license this to IBM. How it works; the user selects 20 random pictures from the photo album on the device and the pictures can be graduations, party’s, pets, family and more then it’s stored in memory then the user chooses 2 to 5 pictures from the 20 pictures selected as the password then when the user opens the page to enter the password the picture password moves on the screen with an algorithm every 3 seconds to prevent any password pattern and prevent any unwanted users from gaining access. The user can select the password as it’s moving on the screen to gain access, and the user is more likely to remember the password because they took all of the pictures . Nothing on a keyboard resembles any pictures or moving pictures for a password so it’s that much more complex for any hackers to gain access as to all pictures have thousands of pixels and no body will want to try to get a color pallet and to duplicate thousands of pixels of 20 random pictures then to figure out how many pictures would be the password and it’s moving consistently would be too complex and not worth a hackers time to hack. Because I own the patent on this advanced picture password technology I’m looking to license this to IBM to add safety and security to IBM’s clients along with extra features in the near future.
