The term "secure keys" is really generic.  What makes the "secure
keys" secure?  We introduced "trusted keys", because TPM 1.2 didn't
support symmetric keys.  We shouldn't just duplicate "trusted keys"
for different HW, but improve upon it (eg. symmetric keys never leave
the device).

The new key type should define generic methods, which are implemented
for NXP CAAM rypto HW accelerator as an example.
