Web Authentication API: FIDO CTAP2 PIN support

The Web Authentication API (WebAuthn) lets web applications authenticate users via external authentication devices called security keys. This feature extends Chrome's implementation of WebAuthn to support local user authorization of security key operations via a user-defined PIN for keys that implement the FIDO CTAP2 protocol. Web sites using WebAuthn can request or require such authorization via the API's "user verification" mechanisms (https://www.w3.org/TR/webauthn/#user-verification).
