DESCRIPTION
     FIDO 2 credentials are abstracted in libfido2 by the fido_cred_t type.
     The functions described in this page allow a fido_cred_t type to be
     allocated, deallocated, and inspected.  For other operations on
     fido_cred_t, please refer to fido_cred_set_authdata(3),
     fido_cred_exclude(3), fido_cred_verify(3), and fido_dev_make_cred(3).

     The fido_cred_new() function returns a pointer to a newly allocated,
     empty fido_cred_t type.  If memory cannot be allocated, NULL is returned.

     The fido_cred_free() function releases the memory backing *cred_p, where
     *cred_p must have been previously allocated by fido_cred_new().  On
     return, *cred_p is set to NULL.  Either cred_p or *cred_p may be NULL, in
     which case fido_cred_free() is a NOP.

     The fido_cred_prot() function returns the protection of cred.  See
     fido_cred_set_prot(3) for the values understood by libfido2.

     The fido_cred_fmt() function returns a pointer to a NUL-terminated string
     containing the format of cred, or NULL if cred does not have a format
     set.

     The fido_cred_authdata_ptr(), fido_cred_clientdata_hash_ptr(),
     fido_cred_id_ptr(), fido_cred_pubkey_ptr(), fido_cred_sig_ptr(), and
     fido_cred_x5c_ptr() functions return pointers to the authenticator data,
     client data hash, ID, public key, signature and x509 certificate parts of
     cred, or NULL if the respective entry is not set.

     The corresponding length can be obtained by fido_cred_authdata_len(),
     fido_cred_clientdata_hash_len(), fido_cred_id_len(),
     fido_cred_pubkey_len(), and fido_cred_sig_len().

     The authenticator data, x509 certificate, and signature parts of a
     credential are typically passed to a FIDO 2 server for verification.

RETURN VALUES
     The authenticator data returned by fido_cred_authdata_ptr() is a CBOR-
     encoded byte string, as obtained from the authenticator.

     If not NULL, pointers returned by fido_cred_fmt(),
     fido_cred_authdata_ptr(), fido_cred_clientdata_hash_ptr(),
     fido_cred_id_ptr(), fido_cred_pubkey_ptr(), fido_cred_sig_ptr(), and
     fido_cred_x5c_ptr() are guaranteed to exist until any API function that
     takes cred without the const qualifier is invoked.
