I want to encourage you to talk to the people in booth 1332 at the RSA expo. Several German companies created "IT-Security Made in Germany" and actually they are doing interesting stuff. My current favorite is a smartcard on a microSD card (CertGate) that you can put in (almost) any mobile phone to get smartcard support on your phone. It is not the silver bullet for the identity management problems I would like to solve but certainly interesting. Or talk to Manuel Bach (BSI) about the eCard API. Definitely this is something to watch.
