There is a group working on a standard for OpenPGP token controlled
access.  I have no URL ready, but I remember that someone else posted
here about it a while ago.  You should also find something in the list
of the IETF WGs.

The SSH draft has an option to use PGP keys for authorization; don´t
know wehtehr this is already implemented.
