UAF is unrelated to WebAuthn, and not part of FIDO2. How communication between client and authenticator works is out of scope for WebAuthn, which specifies only the JavaScript API - you may be looking for [FIDO CTAP][ctap] instead. As an app developer, you should not need to care about how the client finds and connects to authenticators.

In WebAuthn the client and the browser is the same thing. We're aware that there is some duplicate terminology in the spec; we're tracking that in #358.

Does that answer your questions?
