Welcome to the OpenUMA community on ForgeRock.org! This community centers on the emerging User-Managed Access (UMA) standard, part of the new “Venn of access control” that includes OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect.
At ForgeRock we’re deeply committed to open standards, open source, and open processes. This particular community is a new experience for us: throwing open the doors of the use case gathering process to ensure that our growing Open Identity Stack takes full account of the user security, privacy, and empowerment opportunities inherent in UMA, even before we have software ready to share.
In the next few posts, we’ll describe some of the conversations we’ve been having with industry leaders and customers about what “user-managed access” could mean for Identity Relationship Management and the future of user privacy and security.
