Proposed Implementer’s Draft of OpenID Federation

OpenID logoThe OpenID Connect working group has started working group last call (WGLC) for a proposed Implementer’s Draft of the OpenID Federation specification. As described in the WGLC message:

OpenID Federation -35 has been published at and This draft is being proposed as the fourth (and hopefully final) Implementer’s Draft of the specification.

An Implementer’s Draft is a stable version of a specification providing intellectual property protections to implementers of the specification. The two-week working group last call ends on Friday, May 31, 2024. Unless reasons are identified during the last call to substantially revise the specification, the 45-day OpenID Foundation-wide review of the specification for approval as an OpenID Implementer’s Draft will shortly follow.

Special thanks to all the implementers and deployers who provided feedback to get us to this point!
