The OpenID Foundation Welcomes Member’s Comments on Strategic Approach in 2022

Published November 18, 2021

Dear Members,

The OpenID Foundation warmly welcomes comments from the membership on our strategic approach in 2022.

Our standards development work in categories like OpenID Connect is mature while other working groups are just beginning. The adoption of OIDF standards and certification programs are enjoying the global market momentum, and implementations by millions of applications are enabling billions of transactions. This is a result of years of painstaking efforts of our members across working groups.  OpenID Foundation has entered into a period of dramatic change in the Identity ecosystem.

There is more need than ever for the OpenID Foundation to advocate for an open standards approach to building an up to date identity infrastructure, ecosystems, and initiatives that have a positive impact throughout the global community. We are well positioned to meet this moment.

We welcome your comments to between now and Monday, December 20, 2021 on what we should “continue doing, stop doing, and start doing”. We'll use your feedback to calibrate views across the membership via an OpenID Foundation Strategy and Budget Task Force. This Task Force will use member input to craft the 2022 strategy and budget.

I’ll report back to you after the Board approval in February. Many thanks in advance for your participation.


Gail Hodges
Executive Director
