I’m sad this doesn’t work similar to <keygen>. That would make it possible to support this without needing JS in the browser at all.
How timely. I just updated my site with web auth. I’m trying to get my site into shape with the coolest new gizmos and gadgets of the IndieWeb. :P
Have others done this? I can think of almost no sites that support this auth, but if there’s going to be a tree one day I figure I’ll keep trying seeds as they come up.
WebAuthn is a different.. level? of authentication — it’s basically the continuation of the U2F FIDO thing. It’s about talking to public key based authenticator devices like yubikeys and TPMs.
