== section {#uvm-extension} cites FIDO registry w/o proper references 
==
[ hat tip: Yaron Sheffer ]

For the cites below of "FIDO Registry of Predefined Values"..
```
    Each data item is in turn a CBOR array of length 3 (type 0x83) 
with the following data items:
    - Data Item 1 – User Verification Method. This is the 
authentication method/factor used by the authenticator to verify 
                    the user. Available values are defined in the FIDO
 Registry of Predefined Values, ‘User Verification 
                    Methods’ section. It is encoded as a CBOR unsigned
 integer (Major type 0).
    - Data Item 2 – Key Protection Type. This is the method used by 
the authenticator to protect the FIDO registration 
                    private key material. Available values are defined
 in the FIDO Registry of Predefined Values, ‘Key 
                    Protection Types’ section. It is encoded as a CBOR
 2 byte unsigned short (Major type 0).
    - Data Item 3 – Matcher Protection Type. This is the method used 
by the authenticator to protect the matcher that 
                    performs user verification. Available values are 
defined in the FIDO Registry of Predefined Values, 
                    ‘Matcher Protection Types’ section. It is encoded 
as a CBOR 2 byte unsigned short (Major type 0).
```
..we "Just" (he says) need to cite the proper reference.  Presently, 
the publicly published version is here..

https://fidoalliance.org/specs/fido-uaf-v1.0-ps-20141208/fido-uaf-reg-v1.0-ps-20141208.html

It may be updated/revised in the next several months. If so, the 
present values within it will not change, only additions will be made.
