open fun checkConnectionOrThrow()

This method checks if communication with the security key is still available by sending a no-op ping command.

This is useful especially for security keys connected via NFC, since the connection status as tracked by theoperating system sometimes has a delay of up to two seconds.

This method directly performs IO with the security token, and should therefore not be called on the UI thread.
