This may help with #2799.

jsSHA is great and could be used for hmac authentication, but it doesn't handle AES...
So maybe we can just use the crypto API and drop IE11 support.

Examples here: webcrypto-examples.

Big problem with browser crypto is that this relies on asynchronous promises, which would require a huge rewrite of the protocol layer which is sequential by nature.

Maybe asmcrypto.js instead? It handles both AES and HMAC with a synchronous API. (and this fork has documentation)
