### Customer report

Non-public report https://kb.xamarin.com/agent/case/370436

Customer is having trouble accessing the keychain using SecRecord.
It looks like SecRecord is missing a property to enable password access control
(kSecAccessControlApplicationPassword in iOS9+).

Current workaround:
Access the internal NSMutableDictionary SecRecord.queryDict property using reflection, and add
a value for kSecUseAuthenticationContext. 

Are there plans to extend SecRecord with a UseAuthenticationContext
property (or something similar)? If not, is there an alternative recommended workaround?
