Description of problem: u2f-hidraw-policy is not available in EPEL8 for RHEL8. It would increase platform security to make an easily-installable package to use U2F available to EPEL8 users on RHEL8.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL 8
Steps to Reproduce:
1. `yum install u2f-hidraw-policy`
No match for argument: u2f-hidraw-policy
Error: Unable to find a match
It would install the package
It turns out that a very recent upstream systemd commit obsoletes u2f-hidraw-policy entirely:

udev: Add id program and rule for FIDO security tokens
I would prefer for the new udev functionality to enter RHEL directly rather than creating a new EPEL branch for an otherwise obsolete helper. I don't have the ability to change the component for this bug -- could one of you Red Hat folks ask the RHEL systemd maintainers if they can do this?
Thanks Andy. Roughly how long would it take for that upstream systemd commit to enter RHEL8 stable?
I have no clue, and I know basically nothing about RHEL development. I'm reassigning the bug to RHEL8 systemd. Systemd people, if you don't want to backport the commit above, feel free to reassign this to me and I can make an EPEL8 branch.
I see no problem incorporating fido_id to RHEL-8 udev distribution. David can you have a look at this a prepare the backport?
fix merged to github master branch -> https://github.com/systemd-rhel/rhel-8/pull/26 -> post
This backport has been released in CentOS 8 Stream.
Please test this and provide feedback if you're able.
