titleImplementations, interop, and case studiesUMA wins an award at the European Identity Conference!

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 started.Image Added

On May 14, 2014, UMA won an award for innovation in information security at the European Identity Conference! We thank the EIC organizers for this honor, and the Kantara Initiative for its support of our efforts – and offer congratulations to all the UMAnitarians. Joni Brennan of Kantara kindly accepted the award on behalf of the UMA WG, and you can see two members of our leadership team, Maciej Machulak (vice-chair) and Domenico Catalano (graphics/UX editor), above. See more news on Twitter by following @UMAWG and #EIC14!


The purpose of the UMA Work Group (charter) is to develop specs that let an individual control the authorization of data sharing and service access made between online services on the individual's behalf, and to facilitate interoperable implementations of the specs. Read the spec, join the group, check out the implementations, test your interop, get involved!

Follow us on Twitter – our handle is @UMAWG and we often use the hashtag #UMAWG. (Short link for this page is – spread the word.) Find us on Facebook too.
