Updated Simple Web Discovery (SWD) Specification

IETF logoI’ve updated the Simple Web Discovery (SWD) specification to incorporate editorial improvements suggested by Julian Reschke and to apply applicable editorial improvements also recently made to the JOSE specifications. No normative changes were made.

The updated specification is available at:

Changes made were:

  • Changed “requests use the x-www-form-urlencoded format” to “requests use query parameters” and changed “an x-www-form-urlencoded form” to “a form encoded using the application/x-www-form-urlencoded encoding algorithm”, both at the suggestion of Julian Reschke.
  • Updated examples to use “urn:example:” URNs rather than “urn:example.org:” URNs, also at Julian’s suggestion.
  • Applied applicable editorial improvements from JOSE specs to SWD.
  • Updated references to related specifications.
