Second Public Review Period for Three Proposed FastFed Implementer’s Drafts


The OpenID Fast Federation (FastFed) 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.

These drafts incorporate updates to the specifications made in response to feedback during the previous review period. The previous versions did not become Implementer’s Drafts.

The relevant dates are:

  • Implementer’s Drafts public review period: Thursday, October 29, 2020 to Sunday, December 13, 2020 (45 days)
  • Implementer’s Drafts vote announcement: Monday, November 30, 2020
  • Implementer’s Drafts voting period: Monday, December 14, 2020 to Monday, December 21, 2020 (7 days)*

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