Subject: Minutes:Joint XRI & XDI TC Telecon 10AM PT Thursday 2007-12-13
Following are the minutes of a joint unofficial telecon of the XRI and XDI TCs at: Date: Thursday, 13 December 2007 USA Time: 10:00AM - 11:00PM Pacific Time Event Description: Weekly unofficial joint call of the XRI and XDI Technical Committees. ATTENDING Marty Schleiff John Bradley Gabe Wachob Les Chasen Wil Tan Giovanni Bartolomeo Drummond Reed Markus Sabadello AGENDA 1) INTERNET IDENTITY WORKSHOP RECAP We recapped the following highlights from the Internet Identity Workshop in Mountain View last week: * Finalization of the OpenID 2.0 specifications, which include integration of XRI and XRDS. * Discussion of OAuth using XRDS for discovery (see below). * A session on VRM (Vendor Relationship Management) which included a fairly detailed explanation of how XDI and XDI link contracts would be used for user-controlled authorization of data sharing. * A session on XDI RDF and the X3 compact serialization syntax that was well attended. * Two sessions on a proposed new OASIS Open Reputation Management System (ORMS) TC in the ID-Trust Member Section. 2) OAUTH DISCOVERY The OAuth community (see http://oauth.net/) is now developing a discovery protocol and proposing to use XRDS. Markus attended the session on this at IIW. The first draft spec is at: http://oauth-specs.googlecode.com/svn/discovery/drafts/1/spec.html This involves more extensive use of XRDS than OpenID currently makes, and it also involves more OAuth-specific extension elements. However it still involves only a subset of the full XRI Resolution spec. So there is a need to create a "profile" of XRDS elements that will fulfill their use cases while still being compatable with the full XRDS architecture. This profile would not be specific to OAuth Discovery, but would work for most simplified usages of XRDS. Gabe, Markus, and Wil volunteered to assist the OAuth Discovery author Eran Hammer-Lahav in creating such a profile to simplify his work. 3) HOLIDAY TELECON SCHEDULE We discussed the timing of calls over the holidays. It was agreed that we will hold our regularly scheduled telecon next Thursday, December 20, then skip the call on Thursday, December 27, and resume our regular call schedule on Thursday, January 3.
