OAuth Discovery spec pared down to its essence

OAuth logoIn response to working group input, this version of the OAuth Discovery specification has been pared down to its essence – leaving only the features that are already widely deployed. Specifically, all that remains is the definition of the authorization server discovery metadata document and the metadata values used in it. The WebFinger discovery logic has been removed. The relationship between the issuer identifier URL and the well-known URI path relative to it at which the discovery metadata document is located has also been clarified.

Given that this now describes only features that are in widespread deployment, the editors believe that this version is ready for working group last call.

The specification is available at:
