[udev] FIDO u2f security keys should be supported out of the box
Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:
Status in systemd source package in Trusty:
Status in systemd source package in Xenial:
FIDO u2f is an emerging standard for public-private cryptography based
2nd factor authentication, which improves on OTP by mitigating
phishing, man-in-the-middle attacks and reply attacks.
Google Chrome supports u2f devices which are now widely available from
Yubico (new premium neo Yubikeys and Security keys).
However, udev rules are required to setup permissions to allow the
web-browsers which are running as regular users to access the devices
KERNEL=="hidraw*", SUBSYSTEM=="hidraw", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev",
Something like that should be enabled by default, however probably not
encode on the vendor/productid as other vendors will also make u2f
