The challenge is created by the RP, so in that case the RP has the new secret key. The scheme I describe lets the Client generate the HMAC (and own the new secret key).

The idea here is that there is a second secret value possessed by the Client which need not be associated with a specific Authenticator, all while only completing a single ceremony.
