As far as I remember, U2F authenticators have zero AAGUID within the authenticator data structure. So, basic attestation or self attestation with U2F authenticators is allowed to have zero AAGUID.

If the attestation conveyance is set to "none" and the authenticator is a type of self (surrogate) authenticators, the client also needs to stripped off all the identifiable data (AAGUID and attestationObject). If not, the RP may correlate users with this AAGUID if it is non-zero.

So my thinking is that the zero AAGUID is only allowed to **None** attestation format except **FIDO U2F** format.
