I setup a test environment comporting of a windows 2016 evaluation
server and a windows 10 eval too so you can tag along.

Concerning the provisioning for key trust it looks like the  Enterprise
Device Registration Service is the one doing most of the work, since
there are litte if no documentation about it, I prefer on my side to
focus on the day to day auth flow.

It looks like the easiest to implement would be the certificate trust
since it is installed into the personal store of the user. And it is
probably very similar to a smart key process (if you can believe that
is true)
