Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
[This announcement will be forwarded to W3C group chairs]

The Director is pleased to announce the rechartering of the Web 
Authentication Working Group:

The group is chartered through 13 April 2024. The mission of the group 
is to define a client-side API providing strong authentication 
functionality to Web Applications.

Please use the following form to join or re-join the group. The form 
will also instruct you how to nominate participants:

If your organization is currently in the group, please note that you 
will need to have it re-join the group as the scope was extended to 
cover additional API features. This Call for Participation triggers the 
start of the 45 days grace period. See:

Please consider diversity when proposing people to participate in W3C 
groups. Representation from a wider group of people, especially people 
from under-represented groups, is vital for creating web standards that 
meet the needs of the wider web community.

The Working Group chairs are John Fontana (Yubico) and Anthony Nadalin 
(Invited Expert). Team contact is Wendy Seltzer (for 0.05 FTE).
