OpenID Connect is Now Final!

Howdy folks,

Today is an important day for digital identity, since OpenID Connect has been approved as a final specification.

As those of you who follow this blog know, widely-available secure interoperable digital identity is the key to enabling easy-to-use, high-value cloud-based services for the devices and applications that people use.  OpenID Connect fills the need for a simple yet flexible and secure identity protocol and also lets people leverage their existing OAuth 2.0 investments.

Microsoft is proud to be a key contributor to the development of OpenID Connect, and of doing our part to make it simple to deploy and use digital identity across a wide range of use cases.  I look forward to seeing everything that people will make happen with it!

Best regards,

  • Is there any documentation on where Microsoft is using or supporting OpenID Connect today? Thanks

  • Since OpenID Connect is a layer "on top" of OAuth2, and since WAAD already supports OAuth2, does that mean that WAAD supports OpenID Connect as well?
