This allows authenticators without a font rendering engine to be used and also supports a richer visual appearance than accomplished with the webauthn.txauth.simple extension.Web Authentication Section §10.3, Generic Transaction Authorization Extension (txAuthGeneric)W3C_Web_Authentication_Working_Group
authnSelThis registration extension allows a WebAuthn Relying Party to guide the selection of the WebAuthn Authenticator that will be leveraged when creating the credential. It is intended primarily for WebAuthn Relying Parties that wish to tightly control the experience around credential creation.Web Authentication Section §10.4, Authenticator Selection Extension (authnSel)W3C_Web_Authentication_Working_Group
extsThis registration extension enables the WebAuthn Relying Party to determine which [{$pagename}]] the WebAuthn Authenticator supports.

This extension can be added to attestation statements.Web Authentication Section §10.5, Supported Extensions Extension (exts)W3C_Web_Authentication_Working_Group
uviThis registration extension and authentication extension enables use of a user verification index. The user verification index is a value uniquely identifying a user verification data record. The UVI data can be used by servers to understand whether an authentication was authorized by the exact same Biometric data as the initial key generation. This allows the detection and prevention of "friendly fraud".Web Authentication Section §10.6, User Verification Index Extension (uvi)W3C_Web_Authentication_Working_Group
locThe location registration extension and authentication extension provides the WebAuthn Client Device's current Geolocation to the WebAuthn Relying Party, if supported by the client platform and subject to user consent.Web Authentication Section §10.7, Location Extension (loc)W3C_Web_Authentication_Working_Group
uvmThis registration extension and authentication extension enables use of a user verification method.
