Kantara Initiative Public Workshop: Making the World Safe for User-Managed Access
- TYPE: Pre-conference Event DATE: Tuesday, 05/04/2010 TIME: 09:00-13:00 LOCATION: Galaxis
To get useful service at many websites, we're forced to "hand over the data" -- data that's sensitive, valuable, and personal -- and we end up paying a price in both privacy and convenience. The new User-Managed Access web protocol promises to help web users share their data more selectively using a central digital footprint dashboard, while helping websites get access to fresher and better-quality data when they need it. This workshop will review UMA benefits, use cases, progress to date, and next steps.
