Attestation and Metadata Statement

Disclaimer: you should not ask for the Attestation Statement unless you are working on an application that requires a high level of trust (e.g. Banking/Financial Company, Government Agency...).

With Symfony, you must enable this feature and define a Metadata Statement Repository in the configuration file.

        enabled: true
        repository: 'App\Repository\MyMetadataStatementRepository'

The modification of these parameters is not recommended. You should try to sync your server clock first.

Credential Creation Options

By default, no Attestation Statement is asked to the Authenticators (type = none). To change this behavior, you just have to set the corresponding parameter in the Webauthn\PublicKeyCredentialCreationOptions object.

There are 3 conveyance modes available using PHP constants provided by the class Webauthn\PublicKeyCredentialCreationOptions:

  • ATTESTATION_CONVEYANCE_PREFERENCE_NONE: the Relying Party is not interested in authenticator attestation (default)

  • ATTESTATION_CONVEYANCE_PREFERENCE_INDIRECT: the Relying Party prefers an attestation conveyance yielding verifiable attestation statements, but allows the client to decide how to obtain such attestation statements.

  • ATTESTATION_CONVEYANCE_PREFERENCE_DIRECT: the Relying Party wants to receive the attestation statement as generated by the authenticator.

  • ATTESTATION_CONVEYANCE_PREFERENCE_ENTERPRISE: the Relying Party wants to receive uniquely identifying information from authenticators.

    credential_repository: ...
    user_repository: ...
            attestation_conveyance: !php/const Webauthn\PublicKeyCredentialCreationOptions::ATTESTATION_CONVEYANCE_PREFERENCE_DIRECT
                name: 'My application'
                id: ''
