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.
