The Web Authentication Working Group is pleased to publish its Level 2
Recommendation of Web Authentication: An API for accessing Public Key
Credentials. WebAuthn has already seen substantial deployment of
strong cryptographic authentication, replacing insecure password-based
authentication. Level 2 is a maintenance update, superseding Level 1.
The group plans now to work on more substantial updates for Level 3.
