The specification for how a relying party can utilize self-issued identities has now been released.  Self-issued identities use keys you hold yourself, rather than keys held by a third party identity provider.  This allows you at act as your own identity provider.

This completes the set of changes/deliverable agreed to at the in-person working group meeting at Yahoo!.

You can find the new functionality at:

*         http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-implicit-1_0-03.html#self_issued and

*         http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-standard-1_0-13.html#self_issued

Thanks to John and Nat for writing the text for this.

                                                                -- Mike
