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.

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 this fork has documentation)
