PKIX-SSH manages own repository and this feature is not included.
If is important I could publish a separate branch with this.

I cannot see anything useful in this implementation. Nothing is related 
to two-factor. It seems to me is so easy to implement fake-sk key based 
on respective non-sk key.

About secure token - it seems to me PKCS#11 with X.509 is still superior.
