Hanko v0.3.1 (Beta)

The main feature of this release is the support for hardware security keys on passkey creation.

FIDO security keys (and other roaming authenticators)

Until now, we allowed passkeys to be created only on platform authenticators (Touch ID, Face ID, Windows Hello..., i.e., the device you're browsing on) to keep things simple. Roaming authenticators, most commonly known as security keys, were not supported by Hanko so far. But with this release, we removed all restrictions regarding the authenticator types. It is perfectly fine to store a passkey on a physical security key, and now you can do that with Hanko.

One thing to be aware of is that most security keys only support storing a limited number of passkeys that can be as low as 25 in some cases.

This change also improves the passkey creation UI in Chromium browsers where it's now possible to store the passkey on your phone through the QR code flow – which was only working in Safari before.

Multi-platform support

Thanks to @hilli our docker builds now support other platforms than X86, namely AMD64 and ARM64. That's awesome!
