Hi Torsten,

Thank you for this very valuable document.

By reading the set of 2 phases, I was wondering if we could add a scenario
combining these 2 ones.

In this scenario, we could have:


1-    User had an account on a previous MNO (OP1)

2-    User’s account on OP1 is closed

3-    User has an account on a new MNO (OP2)

4-    Eventually, OP1 knows that user has migrated to OP2

5-    RP knows former MNO (OP1)

Use Case:

6-    User visits his usual RP and starts authentication to access the

7-    RP starts the OIDC flow with OP1 with usual secured hints regarding
the user

8-    OP1 answer’s with an error code “account migrated” and sends back to
the RP all the necessary subject values. If OP1 knows what OP user has
migrated to, it is inserted in the answer

9-    RP interacts with the user to get his new OP (discovery process),
unless RP already knows what OP user has migrated to.

10- RP starts the authentication process with OP2

11- According to the success of authentication on OP2, RP migrates subject
values for his RP’s account

This Use case would take place in one shot, at the moment where user needs
to authenticate at RP to get the service, so it would be very efficient in
terms of migration

It minimizes the situation of cascading OPs

It avoids to install a dialog between OP1 and OP2 and privacy concerns
regarding transfer of personal information from OP1 to OP2.

Then it avoids some situations where user will not start the migration
process by accessing a specific service to be developped on OP2.

It avoids limitations in Authorization Grant lifetime.

I could have missed something important, and so I’m looking forward to any
feedback from the list

Kind regards,

Hi all,

I just published -01 of the account migration draft at openid.net (
The source code can be found in our Bitbucket repo.

This is a significant rewrite of the specification based on your valuable
feedback. Thank you! Although I tried to incorporate all review comments,
please bear with me if I missed a comment. Please let me know, so I can
incorporate it in the next revision.

I applied the following changes to the document:

·         reorganized the draft

·         extended introduction and overview

·         stated scope of the draft and what is currently out of scope

·         changed terminology from porting to migration

·         changed migration data structure to be different from an id token

·         cleaned up references

·         added initial security considerations

Please post your feedback to the list.

best regards,
