>From the comment and the current progress of the spec, it seems clear that in the V1 of the spec, the API would not have silent auth capability. I think we can agree that the developer use case that @nadalin laid out, while valid, is not the core use case for the API. To resolve this, I think we will need an all-up discussion about silent auth in V2 of the spec. I propose that we close this issue and make https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/issues/199 the master issue tracking all discussions of silent authentication.
