Crowdtilt campaign to develop UMA-related Apache server open source

Make history by helping this UMA and OpenID Connect Plugins for Apache Crowdtilt campaign reach its goal! As noted on the site, "The web server plugin is a tried and true approach to protecting web resources (both files and APIs...) without requiring a Web programmer to know much about complex authentication and authorization protocols. ... This project will actually deliver two OAuth2 plugins for Apache HTTPD server: (1) a plugin for OpenID Connect to  handle the OAuth2 authentication (2) a plugin for for UMA, to handle the OAuth2 authorization."

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!
