@emlun - Some how it looks the answer for me. However can you please explain a more on what you said in this _**The phone could then implement the CTAP protocol so the browser detects it as an external authenticator. How exactly to set that up would be up to the operating systems of the phone and host.**_  . 

Actually we have "face recognition engine" in our FIDO SDK(for Android) that support **_UAF protocol_** and now we want to implement this "face recognition engine" as external authenticator for FIDO2. Any input will be helpful for me.
