Enable the Key-ID FIDO-U2F token on Linux

Key-Id's FIDO U2F token is a (very) small conveniently sized 2nd factor token, supporting FIDO U2F for 2FA/SSV on various sites. I find it a useful accompaniement to my Yubikey

In order to be able to use it with U2F on Linux though, you'll probably need to add a udev rule so that the device is correctly detected. This documentation details the rule to use.

For reference, this is the detail provided for these dongles by lsusb
