Here is the recent progress to the Board since its last meeting:
- Decided to do a significant rev to the spec with significant change to
the language we're using to describe parts of the Account Chooser. We were
overly using federation terminology which was confusing some people.
account -> account record
shadow account -> federated account
password account -> local account
- Pam is integrating 3 different versions of the spec into a new
consolidated spec. She's looking to do that by the next AC workgroup call
in two weeks.
- Migration of DNS and SSL certs to Symantec for accountchooser.com and
accountchooser.biz. Beginning work to also transfer accountchooser.net.
- One bug fix pushed to production on showing of IDP accounts to sites
that only show passwords.
- Google making proposal
to offer account chooser model inside web browsers. This has gotten vocal
support from Mozilla and at recent W3C Security sub workgroup meeting,
straw poll had 16/20 supporting moving this towards standardization inside
