How we built it

Deprecate Key Generation Element (deprecated)

The Key Generation Element <keygen> is being deprecated as of Chrome 49.


IE/Edge do not support <keygen> and have not indicated public signals to support <keygen>. Firefox already gates <keygen> behind a user gesture, but is publicly supportive of removing it.
