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.

The premise of the Work Group's report A Proposed Licensing Model for User-Managed Access is that UMA enables the individual to centrally manage access and use rights with respect to personal digital assets by converting permission tokens into machine-readable licenses. The group is working on a companion document that outlines a larger business-legal framework for achieving a wide variety of rights delegation use cases involving UMA technology.

Here are the UMA Grant (PDF, HTML for deep linking) and UMA Federated Authorization Recommendations (PDF, HTML for deep linking). Don't miss the UMA2 masterclass delivered by two UMAnitarians at the Identiverse conference in Boston in June 2018 (slides and video). (The slides and video from the previous year's Authorization: Age of UMA session set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was also a big hit!) The Release Notes review all final UMA1-to-UMA2 changes. See also the UMA Implementer's Guide, our list of known Implementations, and discussions of Case Studies. Finally, see the detailed UMA Grant sequence diagram and FedAuthz sequence diagram.

  • 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.

Many thanks to the original reporters of the issue and the group for its quick action.
