The intent is that it will used to build up a standard claims vocabulary for JWT claims.  However, the registry won’t actually come into existence until the JWT spec becomes an RFC, which could be up to a year away.

Subject: [Openid-specs-ab] Claims Registry


I've been pondering over the Claims Registry (http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-core-1_0.html#ClaimsRegistry , http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-oauth-json-web-token-25#section-10.1) a bit lately. In particular, what's the general consensus on how this will be used/grow?

Currently there seems to be a lot of fragmentation around a 'common language' for things (eg. firstName, address, etc) for personal data stores and interoperability among different service. Arguably I could see the ClaimsRegistry (or similar) growing to fulfill that need (if people were to adopt it, which, being part of a standard could be easier)

Is there somewhere currently to see an aggregated view of what exists in the registry? (without digging through individual specs)
