titleCrowdTilt campaign has tilted!

Mike Schwartz of Gluu reports that "OpenID Connect and UMA Apache HTTPD Plugins Are On the Way!" Gluu even commissioned a piece of artwork for the occasion. Stay tuned for news on how you can leverage these plugins.


The purpose of the UMA Work Group (charter) is to develop specs that let an individual control the authorization of data sharing and service access made between online services on the individual's behalf, and to facilitate interoperable implementations of the specs. Read the spec, join the group, check out the implementations, test your interop, get involved!

Follow us on Twitter – our handle is @UMAWG and we often use the hashtag #UMAWG. (Short link for this page is – spread the word.) Find us on Facebook too.
