The InCommon TAC's OpenID Connect (OIDC) Survey Working Group is surveying the higher education and research community for use cases they are trying to address with OIDC/OAuth2 protocols and technologies. The working group will review the results of the survey, report findings and conclusions, and recommend next steps for TIER, IdP/SP federating software, InCommon, and Federation-level support. The report will include thoughts on the urgency of the recommended actions.

The survey will be open until January 20, 2017. Please contribute your thoughts and experience. Thank you.
