Federated Identity Community Group

Hi there!đź‘‹

We’re the Federated Identity Community Group of the W3C.

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!


It’s easy to join the CG if you’d like to contribute to our work. Please note that, in order to join, you’ll need to request a W3C account if you don’t already have one.

We publish a list of current participants on our W3C page.

Regular Meeting Schedule

Our Work

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 occasional face-to-face meetings throughout the year.

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

If you have any questions or concerns, the chairs are more than happy to help. The easiest way to get in touch with them is to file an issue (preferred) or to simply email them (if your concern can’t be raised publicly).
