White Paper: Hardware-backed Keystore Authenticators (HKA) on Android 8.0 or Later Mobile Devices

Enabling Any Relying Parties to Create FIDO UAF (1.1 or later) Client Apps

It takes advantage of secure Android Keystore with key attestation and fingerprint sensors in hardware on standard off-the-shelf Android 8.0 or later mobile devices.
