Happy Holidays from the UMA Work Group to all of you!


Wishing you a holiday season full of blessings, and may 2016 bring you context, control, choice, and respect! Thanks to UMAnitarian Domenico Catalano (@domcat) for this year's marvelous spiral-based holiday message.

User-Managed Access (UMA) is an award-winning OAuth-based protocol designed to give a web user a unified control point for authorizing who and what can get access to their online personal data, content, and services, no matter where all those things live on the web. Read the spec, join the group, check out the implementations, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, get involved!

The short link for this page is



  • December 22: Apologies: We just discovered that this page was linking to V1.1 of the PDF version of the operative IPR policy for the WG, vs. V1.2. The only differences between the two policy versions are the date and title. (The HTML link was correct.) If you have an old version of the IPR policy in your files, note the the correct version should have the date "December 2009" and the title "Option Patent & Copyright: Reciprocal Royalty Free with Opt-Out to Reasonable And Non discriminatory (RAND)" on it.
  • December 13: An exciting new case study has been made available on our site: Users Managing Delegated Access to Online Government Services. Here you can download the final report resulting from a POC performed by the Government of New Zealand.
  • December 7: The UMA V1.0.1 specifications are undergoing Kantara All-Member Ballot for final approval. If you are (or represent) a Kantara member, check your email, follow the survey link, and vote in favor of passage! The ballot closes on December 23.
  • April 4: The UMA V1.0 specifications have been approved as Kantara Initiative Recommendations! Thanks to Kantara and to all UMAnitarians for your efforts to this point! The final UMA Core V1.0 specification (Kantara Recommendation, IETF I-D rev 13) and OAuth Resource Set Registration V1.0 specification (Kantara Recommendation, IETF I-D rev 06) are available. Check out the growing UMA Implementer's Guide. Work continues on the UMA Binding Obligations specification.
