Identity Matters: User Managed Access

In this episode of the Identity Matters Podcast, Eve Maler presents an overview of the User Managed Access (UMA) Work Group. Eve, the UMA WG chair, starts off with background of the group working within the Kantara Initiative and defines the problem space. She then provides an overview of the process the group is taking as well as where they are in their roadmap toward delivering a specification to the IETF.

From the UMA charter: The purpose of the UMA work at Kantara is to develop a set of draft specifications that enable an individual to control the authorization of data sharing and service access made between online services on the individual’s behalf, and to facilitate the development of interoperable implementations of these specifications by others.
