The OpenID AB+Connect Working Group recommends approval of the
following specifications as OpenID Implementer’s Drafts:

•       Basic Client Profile – Simple self-contained specification for
a web-based Relying Party.  (This spec contains a subset of the
information in Messages and Standard.)
•       Discovery – Defines how user and provider endpoints can be
dynamically discovered.
•       Dynamic Registration – Defines how clients can dynamically
register with OpenID Providers.
•       Messages – Defines all the messages that are used in OpenID
Connect.  (These messages are used by the Standard binding.)
•       Standard – Complete HTTP binding of the Messages, for both
Relying Parties and OpenID Providers.
•       Multiple Response Type Encoding – Registers OAuth 2.0
response_type values used by OpenID Connect.
An Implementer’s Draft is a stable version of a specification
providing intellectual property protections to implementers of the
specification.  This note starts the 45 days public review period for
the specification drafts in accordance with the OpenID Foundation IPR
policies and procedures.  This review period will end on Monday,
February 6, 2012.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 Implementer’s Drafts. The specifications are
posted at these locations:•
