Hi Justin,

Thanks, we've had some doubts re what to do when IdToken expires, though 
indeed, my colleagues do not think tying the id token lifetime to the RP 
session one was needed.

What would be the recommended action for the RP to take when it sees 
IdToken expiring. Does it really have any practical value, the IdToken 
expiry time ?

Thanks, Sergey

It doesn’t need to live long to be processed. The RP should take over its session management on its own after that, and it shouldn’t base its session life on the assertion lifetime.
