nsatragno has just submitted a new pull request for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Add a WebDriver Virtual Authenticator extension ==
This change introduces a [WebDriver Extension](https://w3c.github.io/webdriver/#dfn-extension-command) that lets clients create and manipulate virtual authenticators. This API can be used by web developers to write tests against the WebAuthn API and it's also possible to leverage it on [WPTs](https://github.com/web-platform-tests/wpt/tree/master/webauthn) through [testdriver.js](https://web-platform-tests.org/writing-tests/testdriver-tutorial.html). Being able to instantiate virtual authenticators on WPTs would be a major step towards enabling testing a larger surface area of the API across multiple browsers.

Fixes #1236
