Thanks all for the clarification. For my own library I think accepting unsupported attestations as an 'unknown' type with the verification resulting in a "none" attestation type is a valid approach then, with an option to enable strict compliance to the supported attestation types.

One of the reason's I use "best-effort" attestation is to determine the authenticator's device name and aid the user in automatically naming the registered key something like "Yubikey 5".

Thanks, I suspected this was a bug but wasn't sure.

> @madwizard-thomas , Can you also specify Windows 10 version?

It's windows 10 Pro version 2004.
