The UMA V2.0 specifications are in WG Last Call!

The UMA V2.0 specifications are at "WG last call"! Our 2016 roadmap work has borne fruit, and the Work Group approved a key set of drafts as of 9 March 2017: UMA Core V2.0 revision 20 and OAuth 2.0 Resource Registration revision 07. Here is a detailed swimlane diagram that dynamically tracks the drafts, and a high-level swimlane diagram that briefly summarizes the UMA2 flow. The UMA Implementer's Guide is also growing. If you're interested to contribute to the review, testing, and finalization of the Kantara Recommendation versions of these specifications over the coming few weeks and months, we welcome you! Fill out the Group Participation Agreement form to get going. The WG last call period will end on April 11.

User-Managed Access (UMA) is an award-winning OAuth-based protocol designed to give an individual a unified control point for authorizing who and what can get access to their digital data, content, and services, no matter where all those things live. Read the specs, join the group, check out the implementations, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, get involved!

  • March 3: The UMA Legal subgroup is meeting again to look at important new deliverables. If you've got a legal specialty, or want to contribute to the connection between consent/permission/authorization/delegation and the regulatory data protection world, you're just the kind of person we're looking for.
  • November 4: The UMA Legal subgroup has a new sharpened-up charter today! Check out the Legal page for links to interim deliverables. Particularly if you're a "legal eagle", are familiar with GDPR, or have business use cases involving delegation or proxies/guardians, we'd love for you to join us and help out. (See the Join link on this page.)
  • March 29: One of UMA's three trust elevation methods, claims gathering, was reported on January 27 to be affected by a session fixation attack. The WG has produced an extension specification to enable mitigation of the attack called UMA Claims-Gathering Extension for Enhanced Security, and a background document to further discuss the attack, the mitigation chosen, and other approaches considered and possible. Many thanks to the original reporters of the issue and the group for its quick action.
