AuthenticatorAttestationResponse

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

When a WebAuthn authenticator creates a new PublicKeyCredential via a create() call, the PublicKeyCredential.response value will be an AuthenticatorAttestationResponse object. This object contains two properties: 1) a clientDataJSON property inherited from AuthenticatorResponse; and 2) an attestationObject that is an authenticator's way of providing a root of trust for the newly created keypair.

Properties

AuthenticatorAttestationResponse.clientDataJSON
Inherited from AuthenticatorResponse.clientDataJSON. Includes the client data for the authentication, such as origin and challenge.
AuthenticatorAttestationResponse.attestationObject
An authenticator's cryptographic attestation that a newly generated keypair was created by that authenticator.

Methods

None.

Examples

TBD
