Using auth functionality with hwcrypto.js is similar to sign functionality

getCertificate using filter parameter with value "AUTH"

The signed input should be JWT. You can find more for creating and validating JSON Web Tokens and example page


window.hwcrypto.getCertificate({lang: 'en', filter: 'AUTH'}).then(function(certificate) {
   // Do something with the certificate, like prepare the hash to be signed
   var hash = calculateSHA256SignatureHashAsHexForCertificate(certificate.hex);
   // Now sign the hash
   window.hwcrypto.sign(certificate, {type: 'SHA-256', hex: hash}, {lang: 'en'}).then(function(signature) {
      // Do something with the signature
   }, function(error) {
      // Handle the error. `error.message` is one of the described error mnemonics
      console.log("Signing failed: " + error.message);
