Have you ever gone through security at a DoD facility or looked at the DoD identification process? It contains three (3) items:
    ° Something you are,             (fingerprint, biometric, etc)
    ° Something you have, and   (a badge or ID)
    ° and something you know.    (a password)

Industry is looking to add a 4th to this list: "Something you do". Basically, the act of playing a game or sequence of motions is used to create a profile of your responses that can be predictive. An article in Scientific American explains the concept:
Forget Passwords: How Playing Games Can Make Computers More Secure


The WebID-TLS protocol also has a "proof of work" component that's used to verify identities, at Web-Scale. Basically, its just another use of RDF. Methinks, you simply need:

[1] Identifiers e.g., HTTP URIs that name things
[2] Identification claims authentication protocols
[3] Web of Trust Logic -- then we move from 1,2,3,4 factor type authentication to logic evaluation.
