Yubikey Plus U2F / Google Auth

Just a quick post for now. I’ll probably post a more detailed update once I’ve finally finished configuring the keys.

I spent ages looking for U2F support on a Yubikey Plus (the special coloured ones) but couldn’t find anything. I tried the Neo Manager (neoman) but that wouldn’t work with it. As it turns out, U2F doesn’t consume a slot and all you have to do is visit the security keys page and follow the instructions there to use it to authenticate yourself against your Google account (so long as you use Google Chrome)
