A key focus in 2012-Q1 will be supporting and facilitating interoperable implementation and deployment. Keep an eye on the Implementations page, the Case Studies page, and the UMA area of the OSIS wiki to help get your own implementation work startedImage Added

The Work Group is sorting through the comments we received, and determining and implementing responses as appropriate. You can follow along in our Disposition of Comments document-in-progress. We have published an interim set of resulting specifications: UMA 2.0 Grant for OAuth 2.0 Authorization (UMA Grant rev 06) and Federated Authorization for UMA 2.0 (FedAuthz rev 06).

Resources to understand more about UMA are available and growing. Don't miss the slides from Authorization: Age of UMA, the Introducing UMA 2.0 session delivered by two UMA coauthors at the Chicago Cloud Identity Summit (and stay tuned for the video). We're fleshing out the Release Notes, updating the UMA Implementer's Guide, and attending to similar tasks around the site. Also see these UMA Grant and FedAuthz sequence diagrams. If you're interested to help, we invite you to join the group! Fill out the Group Participation Agreement form to get going.
