UMA Validator Bounty Program

Draft 1.0, approved 14 Oct 2010 by the Kantara UMA Work Group


The bounty program is now complete. We received two submissions, and bounty awards have been decided. Thank you, submitters!


  • Develop material that assists in validating the compliance of implemented authorization manager, host, requester, and authorizing user/user agent endpoints to the UMA draft specifications (and their referenced external specifications).
  • The material can consist of positive and negative test cases, executable code, testing guidelines, full test suites, and/or other deliverables necessary for testing UMA functionality.
  • Testing code can be in any language, but must be available under a well-recognized open-source license and must be in a form that can be readily hosted at or another agreed-upon site.
  • The goals are to promote multiple interoperable implementations of the UMA specifications and to drive improvements in those specifications that support interoperability and compliance.
