AuthenticatorAttestationResponse: getPublicKeyAlgorithm() method

Secure context: This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

The getPublicKeyAlgorithm() method of the AuthenticatorAttestationResponse interface returns a number that is equal to a COSE Algorithm Identifier, representing the cryptographic algorithm used for the new credential.

This is a convenience function created to allow easy access to the algorithm type. This information will need to be stored in order to verify future authentication operations (i.e., using navigator.credentials.get()).

Syntax

js
getPublicKeyAlgorithm()

Parameters

None.

Return value

A number that is equal to a COSE Algorithm Identifier, representing the cryptographic algorithm used for the new credential.
