UMA V1.0.1 specifications approved by the Kantara membership


The UMA V1.0.1 specifications are Kantara Recommendations! The UMA Core V1.0.1 Recommendation and the OAuth Resource Set Registration V1.0.1 Recommendation are now available (check out the Release Notes too). Many thanks to the Work Group, the Kantara staff, and the membership for their support.

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!

See the UMA Roadmap for 2016 page to see the use cases and technical issues that the Work Group is currently focusing on.

  • June 23: Today Eve Maler (@xmlgrrl), Maciej Machulak (@mmachulak), and Domenico Catalano (@domcat) were re-elected to their leadership team positions – chair, vice-chair, and user experience editor, respectively. Maciej was also elected to the new position of UMA Developer Resources Work Group liaison. See the Leadership Team page for all details. Thanks to all previously serving leadership team members for their service!
  • 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. The WG has produced an extension specification to enable mitigation of the attack called UMA Claims-Gathering Extension for Enhanced Security, and a background document to further discuss the attack, the mitigation chosen, and other approaches considered and possible. Many thanks to the original reporters of the issue and the group for its quick action.
  • February 12: The new UMA Roadmap for 2016 page keeps track of the use cases we are prioritizing and currently focusing on.
  • January 25: Enabling user-managed access requires a "BLT sandwich" – not just technical solutions, but well-rounded business and legal solutions as well! A new set of UMA Legal auxiliary material is now available on this wiki, representing the work done by the WG and its ad hoc legal subgroup. Stay tuned for more news and deliverables.
  • January 17: As of December 23, the Kantara All-Member Ballot for the UMA V1.0.1 specifications passed with flying colors. The UMA Core V1.0.1 Recommendation and the OAuth Resource Set Registration V1.0.1 Recommendation are now available (check out the Release Notes too). Many thanks to the Work Group, the Kantara staff, and the membership for their support as we cleaned up various small bugs throughout the spring and summer and returned the specs to the community for review in the fall.
