Public Review Period for Two Proposed FAPI 2.0 Second Implementer’s Drafts   Recently updated !


The OpenID Financial-grade API (FAPI) Working Group recommends approval of the following specifications as OpenID Implementer’s Drafts:

An Implementer’s Draft is a stable version of a specification providing intellectual property protections to implementers of the specification. This note starts the 45-day public review period for the specification drafts in accordance with the OpenID Foundation IPR policies and procedures. 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 OpenID Implementer’s Drafts. For the convenience of members, voting will actually begin a week before the start of the official voting period, for members who have completed their reviews by then.

The relevant dates are:

  • Implementer’s Drafts public review period: Monday, November 14, 2022 to Thursday, December 29, 2022 (45 days)
  • Implementer’s Drafts vote announcement: Friday, December 16, 2022
  • Implementer’s Draft early voting opens: Friday, December 23, 2022 *
  • Implementer’s Drafts official voting period: Friday, December 30, 2022 to Friday, January 6, 2023 (7 days)*

* Note: Early voting before the start of the formal voting will be allowed.

The FAPI working group page is https://openid.net/wg/fapi/. Information on joining the OpenID Foundation can be found at https://openid.net/foundation/members/registration. If you’re not a current OpenID Foundation member, please consider joining to participate in the approval vote.

You can send feedback on the specifications in a way that enables the working group to act upon it by (1) signing the contribution agreement at https://openid.net/intellectual-property/ to join the working group (please specify that you are joining the “FAPI” working group on your contribution agreement), (2) joining the working group mailing list at https://lists.openid.net/mailman/listinfo/openid-specs-fapi, and (3) sending your feedback to the list.


Note that on December 7, 2022, updated versions of the specifications were published at https://openid.net/specs/fapi-2_0-security-profile.html, https://openid.net/specs/fapi-2_0-security-profile-03.html, https://openid.net/specs/fapi-2_0-attacker-model.html, and https://openid.net/specs/fapi-2_0-attacker-model-03.html. The updates were strictly editorial improvements.
