WebAuthn Client Device

Overview#

WebAuthn Client Device is a Client Device or the hardware hosting a WebAuthn Client.

Examples of WebAuthn Client Device are Laptops and Mobile Devices.

The distinction between WebAuthn Client Device and the WebAuthn Client is that one WebAuthn Client Device MAY support running multiple WebAuthn Clients, i.e., browser implementations, which all have access to the same authenticators available on that WebAuthn Client Device; and that Platform Authenticators are bound to a WebAuthn Client Device rather than a WebAuthn Client.

A WebAuthn Client Device and a WebAuthn Client together make up a client platform.
