Intent to Ship: Web Authentication

Summary: Support public key cryptographic authentication devices
through Web Authentication.

Web Authentication is backward compatible with FIDO U2F second-factor
tokens, and also supports more advanced capabilities in future FIDO
2.0 devices. We intend to ship support for USB-connected FIDO U2F
devices initially, with other transports and FIDO 2.0 device support
to follow in 2018.

Tracking bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=webauthn

Spec: https://www.w3.org/TR/webauthn/

(Note that the latest working draft,
https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/WD-webauthn-20171205/, is considered by the
WG to be feature complete, and no more normative changes are
anticipated.)

Estimated target release: 60

Preference behind which this is implemented:
security.webauth.webauthn

DevTools support:
N/A

Support by other browser engines:
- Blink: In-progress [1]
- Edge: In-progress [2]
- Webkit: No public announcements

Testing:
Mochitests in-tree; https://webauthn.io/; https://webauthn.bin.coffee/
; Web Platform Tests in-progress


Cheers,
J.C. Jones and Tim Taubert

This is really awesome and a significant advance on other 2FA solutions. I've
been looking forward to us shipping this. Thank you for all your hard work!
