The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* libfido2-1.3.0-2
* libfido2-devel-1.3.0-2

libfido2 provides library functionality and command-line tools to
communicate with a FIDO device over USB, and to verify attestation and
assertion signatures.

libfido2 supports the FIDO U2F (CTAP 1) and FIDO 2.0 (CTAP 2) protocols.

CYGWIN hint:

  Due to a lack of hardware this functionality is entirely untested

WINDOWS 10 hint:

  On Windows 1903 and newer versions, access to FIDO devices has been
  restricted to applications using the operating system's native WebAuthn
  API.  This change has not been included into libfido2 yet.  For the
  time being, use of libfido2 is still possible in applications running 
  with Administrator privileges.
