OpenID Foundation Workshops provide early insight and influence on important open identity standards like OpenID Connect. These workshops provide updates on the OpenID Certification Program as well as updates on OpenID Foundation Working Groups. The workshop will review the interface of the MODRNA (Mobile Profile of OpenID Connect) and the GSMA’s Mobile Connect.

We will review other protocols in the pipeline like RISC, HEART, Account Chooser, Strong Authentication and the latest Implementer’s Draft of the Financial API profile.
