Third Release Candidates for OpenID Connect Implementer’s Drafts

OpenID logoA third set of Release Candidates for the pending OpenID Connect Implementer’s Drafts have been released. Like the first set, the second set of Release Candidates, which were published earlier this month, also received thorough review, resulting in a smaller set of additional refinements.

However, the OpenID Connect working group made the decision to have those (non-breaking) JOSE changes be applied before we declare that the Implementer’s Drafts are done. Expect announcements about both the JOSE updates and the OpenID Connect Implementer’s Drafts soon.

The new specifications are:

See the History entries in the specs for more details on the changes made.

Thanks again to all who reviewed and implemented the recent drafts!
