The three main UMA Version 0.9 specificationsUMA Core, OAuth Resource Set Registration, and UMA Claim Profiles – completed a 45-day public review period as of September 6, 2014. The UMA group has launched interop testing, and is holding an open implementors' meeting on the afternoon of October 29 at IIW XIX. To find out more, subscribe to the UMA-dev list. To learn about existing implementations that we know about, visit our Implementations page.



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!
