The rp property of the PublicKeyCredentialCreationOptions dictionary is an object describing the relying party which requested the credential creation (via navigator.credentials.create()).


relyingPartyObj = publicKeyCredentialCreationOptions.rp


icon Optional
An URL as a USVString value which points to an image resource which can be the logo/icon of the relying party.
A DOMString uniquely identifying a relying party. The default value of this property is the domain of the current document (e.g. ""). It may be overridden with a suffix of the current domain (e.g. "").
A DOMString giving a human-readable name for the relying party. This property is intended for display (e.g. "Example CORP").


var publicKey = {
  challenge: /* from the server */,
  rp: {
    name: "Example CORP",
    id  : "",
    icon: ""
  user: {
    id: new Uint8Array(16),
    name: "",
    displayName: "John Doe"
  pubKeyCredParams: [
      type: "public-key",
      alg: -7

navigator.credentials.create({ publicKey })
  .then(function (newCredentialInfo) {
    // send attestation response and client extensions
    // to the server to proceed with the registration
    // of the credential
  }).catch(function (err) {
