Join us for a UMA Webinar, Dec. 14, 2011 at 10am PT

“What is UMA and why do we need it?”

In a nutshell, User-Managed Access (UMA) is…

  • A web protocol that lets you conveniently control who gets access to all your online stuff, no matter where it lives and no matter whether you’re online at the moment
  • A Work Group of the Kantara Initiative that is free for anyone to join and contribute to
  • A set of draft specifications that is free for anyone to implement

UMA is needed by…

  • Individuals, to give them a “personal data concierge” that handles requests for access to their online data, content, and services
  • Websites, to enable them to offer sophisticated data-sharing features to their users without having to implement those features natively
  • Online identity providers, to offer their users the ability to set access policies from a single place even if those users engage with dozens or hundreds of sites and apps on a regular basis

This webinar will…

  • Discuss real-life use cases for UMA
  • Demonstrate UMA implementations
  • Review UMA’s architecture and its relationship to the OAuth and OpenID Connect specifications
