Federated Identity Community Group

The purpose of the Federated Identity Community Group is to provide a forum focused on incubating web features that will both support federated identity and prevent untransparent, uncontrollable tracking of users across the web. While the community group will take privacy concerns into consideration, these concerns will be balanced against the need to explore innovative ideas around federated authentication on the web.

Community Group Charter

The Federated Identity CG is chartered to provide a forum focused on incubating web features that will both support federated identity and prevent untransparent, uncontrollable tracking of users across the web. If that sounds interesting to you, please join us!

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

We conduct all of our technical work in public, mainly in various GitHub repositories but also in periodic teleconferences and face-to-face meetings.

We try to keep the list of our current work items in our charter up-to-date. You can follow links from there to each work item’s GitHub repository, where you can see the latest text, and file or comment on issues.

We discuss new proposals in our proposals repository.

We have teleconferences twice a month and expect to have occasional face-to-face meetings throughout the year.

We organize our meetings and publish the agendas and minutes from them in our meetings repository.

Please note that all work and communication within the Privacy CG is covered by the W3C Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
