OBSOLETE! This project has become obsolete with new improvements brought by Chrome 87. Chrome DevTools now provide a similar feature to what this project aimed at providing. See https://developer.chrome.com/blog/new-in-devtools-87/#webauthn
This is a Chrome Extension that emulates a hardware authentication device, allowing you to register with Webauthn-compatible websites without requiring an actual physical device.
I cannot emphasize enough that this project by no means replaces a Hardware Authentication Device. The use of this extension is aimed exclusively at development, testing and debugging. If you use it in a production environment, do so at your own risk. We will elaborate on the guarantees (and lack of) that this project provides on the last post of the series.
This project uses Webpack for its building pleasures.
$ npm run build
Or if you're iterating quickly...
$ npm run watch
Loading into the browser
You can load the project as an unpacked extension. Upon building, you may load the directory
dist/chromium/ into your browser. More details on how to do this here.
