tony: does it impact SPWG in FIDO land

jeffH: I don't think so
... this is already being done, we are just documenting it.

jbradley: this might upset the SPWG, but it is outside the authenticator

jeffH: it is between the RP and the authenticator
... things already being done, extensions or running native apps, they are not using Web Authn API

AGL: in think SSH is discoverable, don't know for sure

... may next week, if Apple not here, we can decide to produce a WD-03
... it is your decision
... hold up for #1452 and look at it next week.
... any other issues.


jeffH: apple is attestation format.
