Kantara Initiative Releases User-Managed Access Version 2.0 Specifications
The Kantara Initiative formally announced today the approval and publication of the User-Managed Access (UMA) Version 2.0 (UMA 2.0) technical specifications. UMA 2.0 offers significant enhancements to the established global standard bringing user consent, control and trust into easier reach for organizations processing personal data.
UMA is an award-winning OAuth-based protocol designed to give individuals a convenient central place for controlling who and what can access their online personal data, no matter where that data resides. This gives control to the individual allowing him or her to share or withdraw access to their information on their own terms instead of having to provide “opt-in” consent immediately.
