The way the conversation went in the last FIDO TWG meeting, **"passkey"** will refer to cloud-synced discoverable credentials that can be used across devices. The differentiated **"single-device passkey"** can be used instead to refer to existing credentials, credentials generated on security keys (or other authenticators without cloud syncing capabilities), and credentials with device-bound public keys  generated with the upcoming `devicePubKey` extension.
