How we built it

Remove Key Generation Element (removed)

Since Chrome 49, <keygen>'s default behaviour has been to return the empty string, unless a permission was granted to this page. Removal is anticipated in Chrome 57.

Comments

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. Safari ships <keygen> and has not expressed public views regarding its continued support.
