The fido_dev_info_manifest() function fills devlist with up to ilen FIDO2 devices found by the underlying operating system. Currently only USB HID devices are supported. The number of discovered devices is returned in olen, where olen is an addressable pointer.
The fido_dev_info_new() function returns a pointer to a newly allocated, empty device list with n available slots. If memory is not available, NULL is returned.
The fido_dev_info_free() function releases the memory backing *devlist_p, where *devlist_p must have been previously allocated by fido_dev_info_new(). The number n of allocated slots must also be provided. On return, *devlist_p is set to NULL. Either devlist_p or *devlist_p may be NULL, in which case fido_dev_info_free() is a NOP.
The fido_dev_info_ptr() function returns a pointer to slot number i of devlist. It is the caller's responsibility to ensure that i is bounded. Please note that the first slot has index 0.
The fido_dev_info_path() function returns the filesystem path or subsystem-specific identification string of di.
The fido_dev_info_product() function returns the product ID of di.
The fido_dev_info_vendor() function returns the vendor ID of di.
The fido_dev_info_manufacturer_string() function returns the manufacturer string of di. If di does not have an associated manufacturer string, fido_dev_info_manufacturer_string() returns an empty string.
The fido_dev_info_product_string() function returns the product string of di. If di does not have an associated product string, fido_dev_info_product_string() returns an empty string.
An example of how to use the functions described in this document can be found in the examples/manifest.c file shipped with libfido2.
The fido_dev_info_set() function initializes an entry in a device list allocated by fido_dev_info_new() with the specified path, manufacturer, and product strings, and with the specified I/O handlers and, optionally, transport functions, as described in fido_dev_set_io_functions(3). The io argument must be specified; the transport argument may be NULL. The path, I/O handlers, and transport functions will be used automatically by fido_dev_new_with_info(3) and fido_dev_open_with_info(3). An application can use this, for example, to substitute mock FIDO2 devices in testing for the real ones that fido_dev_info_manifest() would discover.

The fido_dev_info_manifest() function always returns FIDO_OK. If a discovery error occurs, the olen pointer is set to 0.
On success, the fido_dev_info_set() function returns FIDO_OK. On error, a different error code defined in <fido/err.h> is returned.
The pointers returned by fido_dev_info_ptr(), fido_dev_info_path(), fido_dev_info_manufacturer_string(), and fido_dev_info_product_string() are guaranteed to exist until fido_dev_info_free() is called on the corresponding device list.
