Hello Robert :-) I am using YubiKey 4NFC and 5NFC as GPG/SSH store for
years. Did not use FIDO though.. and the Web Browser Key does not work
with it on FreeBSD (may just need some tuning). Vendor supports
Open-Source quite nice. There are several utilities in FreeBSD Ports
already to manage yubico devices. There also were some PAM modules to
work with them. One simple waterproof token contains many different
applications and functions and it is very rugged you may find it
useful as I did :-)
