User-Managed Access Group Takes “Last-Call” Look at 2.0 Specs, Invites Participation

In 2016, the User-Managed Access Work Group set out roadmap objectives for achieving better UMA alignment with OAuth and OpenID Connect, simplifying UMA’s design, solving additional Internet of Things use cases, and making it possible to serve the widest possible ecosystems. Now, having met its goals, the group has entered a “WG last-call” stage to let group participants review and test the draft Version 2.0 specifications prior to finalization as Kantara Recommendations.

UMA is an award-winning OAuth-based protocol designed to give an individual a unified control point for authorizing who and what can get access to their digital data, content, and services, no matter where all those things live. It has important implications for user consent and delegation, and the group’s efforts involve both technical and legal streams.

The WG last-call period will end on April 11, 2017.

Don’t wait!  Join us now by completing the group participation form to contribute to the review, testing, and finalization of the specifications for UMA V2.0 (UMA Core and OAuth Resource Registration), or follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, to get the latest news.
