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

The read-only property RTCIdentityEvent.assertion returns the DOMString containing a blob being the coded assertion associated with the event.

Firefox implements the interface this property belongs to under the following name: RTCPeerConnectionIdentityEvent. It is likely that it will correct this name when it will unprefix RTCPeerConnection, once spec and implementation will have been stabilized.


 var blob = event.assertion;


pc.onidentityresult = function( ev ) {
                         alert("A new identity assertion (blob: '" + 
                               ev.assertion + 
                               "') has been generated.");
