* Content process manager for the WebAuthn protocol. Created on calls to the
* WebAuthentication DOM object, this manager handles establishing IPC channels
* for WebAuthn transactions, as well as keeping track of JS Promise objects
* representing transactions in flight.
* The WebAuthn spec ( allows for two different
* types of transactions: registration and signing. When either of these is
* requested via the DOM API, the following steps are executed in the
* WebAuthnManager:
* - Validation of the request. Return a failed promise to js if request does
* not have correct parameters.
* - If request is valid, open a new IPC channel for running the transaction. If
* another transaction is already running in this content process, cancel it.
* Return a pending promise to js.
* - Send transaction information to parent process (by running the Start*
* functions of WebAuthnManager). Assuming another transaction is currently in
* flight in another content process, parent will handle canceling it.
* - On return of successful transaction information from parent process, turn
* information into DOM object format required by spec, and resolve promise
* (by running the Finish* functions of WebAuthnManager). On cancellation
* request from parent, reject promise with corresponding error code. Either
* outcome will also close the IPC channel.
