are you telling me that FIDO is good strong authentication and keygen bad 
strong authentication? How, in this case, would use cases that Tim mentioned 
being done with FIDO? Out of the box?

Is keygen the same as any other connection to the offline ID token world?


P.S. If you're authenticated you can do serverside stateful service, so all 
authentication is like a cookie :) But some cookie is not authentication.
