  • 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.
