OAuth logoDraft 12 of the OAuth 2.0 Bearer Token Specification has been published. I believe that the chairs will be submiting this version to the IESG. It contains the following changes:

  • Made non-normative editorial changes that Hannes Tschofenig requested be applied prior to forwarding the specification to the IESG.
  • Added rationale for the choice of the b64token syntax.
  • Added rationale stating that receivers are free to parse the scope attribute using a standard quoted-string parser, since it will correctly process all legal scope values.
  • Added additional active working group contributors to the Acknowledgements section.

The draft is available at these locations:
