Right, we don't have step-up authentication OOTB right now.

In theory, you can implement some support of it by yourself, because we 
have Authentication SPI. So you can do the flow, which will somehow 
differ the required level of authentication (for example based on some 
request parameter) and then choose the authenticators based on the 
required level etc. But note that it likely won't be trivial to do this
