The OpenID Connect Working Group recommends the approval of Errata to the following specifications:

*        OpenID Connect Core - Defines the core OpenID Connect functionality: authentication built on top of OAuth 2.0 and the use of Claims to communicate information about the End-User.

*        OpenID Connect Discovery - Defines how Relying Parties dynamically discover information about OpenID Providers.

*        OpenID Connect Dynamic Client Registration - Defines how Relying Parties dynamically register with OpenID Providers.

An Errata version of a specification incorporates corrections identified after the Final Specification was published.  This note starts the 45 day public review period for the specification drafts in accordance with the OpenID Foundation IPR policies and procedures.  This review period will end on Friday, October 31, 2014.  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 Errata Drafts.

These specifications incorporating Errata are available at:

*        http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-core-1_0-21.html

*        http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-discovery-1_0-24.html

*        http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-registration-1_0-27.html

*        Fixed #920 - Core - Attack identified against self-issued "sub" values.

*        Core - Authorization Code validation is not done when using the response type "code token" because the validation process requires an ID Token.
