The premise of the Work Group's report A Proposed Licensing Model for User-Managed Access is for you? Check out the group's charter document! The next phase of our efforts involves four prongs: 1) spec enhancements (such as extensions); 2) business model (aka "UMA Legal") work; 3) promoting adoption; and 4) promoting interop. If any of these could accelerate your own efforts, join us!TheUMA 2.0 Grant for OAuth 2.0 Authorization and Federated Authorization for UMA 2.0 Recommendationscan be downloaded at the Kantara Reports & Recommendations page. Need to cite or deep-link? Find HTML versions here: Grant, FedAuthz.Many resources to understand more about UMA are available. Don't miss the slides and video from Authorization: Age of UMA, the "Introducing UMA 2.0" session delivered by two UMA coauthors at the Chicago Cloud Identity Summit. The Release Notes are up to date with all spec changes through the first Public Comment periodthat 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, all of which continue to grow. Finally, see the detailed UMA Grant sequence diagram and FedAuthz sequence diagram.
