Kantara Initiative: Empowering Individuals to Control Personal Data

Kantara Initiative, a nonprofit membership organization that connects businesses, consumers, governments, and citizens through innovations and programs that support more natively trustworthy environments, has developed a protocol for User-Managed Access (UMA).  Driven by industry experts, UMA has reached the milestone of stability as a Kantara Initiative Recommendation v1.0. Kantara Initiative is calling on all interested organizations to implement!

Pronounced "OOH-mah", UMA is an 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. 

This can include:

  • Personal data such as identity attributes
  • Digital content such as online photos
  • Services such as viewing and creating status updates
