[OpenID board] [OIDFSC] Native application SSO Working Group

We floated the idea of starting this as a IETF ID, but it was felt that getting it under the OIDF IPR policy as soon as possible was preferable if any of it was to become a OIDF spec.

I would not characterize the Dynamic registration work as a disaster of any sort.  It is true that once in the IETF these things are harder to keep focuses, however that argues for developing the profile inside the OIDF.

Given that we have already included some things in connect like "azp" to enable intermediate agent to get id_tokens to be consumed by 3rd parties we also considered doing it in the connect WG.
I personally thought a separate WG was preferable to avoid people who have IPR commitments to Connect from being forced to make them for this without taking an affirmative action to join the WG.

As we dig into this the work may need to be separated into several specifications as delegation of a token to a 3rd party, basing authorization of a 3rd parties resource server on an external assertion,  bootstrapping web applications from a native app, and proxying OAuth requests.   That will be the decision of the WG once it is chartered.

I appreciate your intrest in making sure that we correctly set the scope of the WG.

I don’t want the situation we are in with dynamic registration we are now, having to keep the OIDF work in sync with the IETF work, its suck. I think this could be easily profiled in IETF to be generic and then anything specific can be done in OIDF
