IssueChrome browser released an advisory that it will deprecate some functionality that used in rsa.js script in March 2017 :
Information about the deprecation below : 
'window.webkitStorageInfo' is deprecated. Please use 'navigator.webkitTemporaryStorage' or 'navigator.webkitPersistentStorage' instead.
'webkitIndexedDB' is deprecated and will be removed in M57, around March 2017. Please use 'indexedDB' instead.
See https://www.chromestatus.com/features/5775330191081472 for more details.
rsa.js used in Adaptive Authentication does not use webkitStorageInfo or any local html5 storage.
Hence there would be no impact on the deprecation as mentioned by Chrome.
In certain cases, Chrome does report warnings about these tool-kits being used by rsa.js, however this should be considered wrongly reported by chrome as we don't use any webkit.
