You'd probably want it to be a public/private key. Basically like U2F but FIDO
needs to stop eating their own dog food (LOL FIDO... dog food) and remove the 10
second window, use deterministic signing, remove signature counter, and replace
key ids with user name/id and server domain. So they can do privateKey =
kdf(user name/id, server domain, secret key). They can keep the BS DRM as long
as the key is changed less than every 100,000 devices. It would be nice to have
verifiability (ie set my own secret key) so I can verify it's not leaking info.

That fixes tracking and some other things but you're now susceptible to the
device cloning "the James Bond attack".
<funny joke can skip>
Were James Bond sneaks in grabs your U2F dongle, takes it to a lab rips it
apart, steals the secret key, and makes a clone. He walks back in but your back
looking for the your U2F dongle. And he goes over to your desk and says "is this
what you're looking for" bends over and fakes picking something up off the
ground and hands you the clone *splosh*. Oh wait no that's Archer.
</funny joke can skip>

Also we will always need passwords for encryption.
