Review of proposed final OpenID 2.0 to OpenID Connect Migration specification


The OpenID Connect Working Group recommends approval of the following specification as an OpenID Final Specification:

A Final Specification provides intellectual property protections to implementers of the specification and is not subject to further revision.

This note starts the 60 day public review period for the specification drafts in accordance with the OpenID Foundation IPR policies and procedures. This review period will end on Thursday, April 2, 2015. Unless issues are identified during the review that the working group believes must be addressed by revising the drafts, this review period will be followed by a seven day voting period during which OpenID Foundation members will vote on whether to approve these drafts as Final Specifications and Implementer’s Drafts.  For the convenience of members, voting may begin up to two weeks before Thursday, April 2nd, with the voting period still ending on Thursday, April 9, 2015.
