The point of AEM is ultimately to somehow authenticate the computer to
the user, rather than the more common direction of authenticating the
identify of a user to the computer (which IIUC is all that U2F can
provide, where in the U2F case
I was wondering how much additional security this could give AEM if it
supported adding Fido U2F as 2FA. it wouldn't require external services like
