This specification provides a framework for the use of assertions
with OAuth 2.0 in the form of a new client authentication mechanism
and a new authorization grant type.  Mechanisms are specified for
transporting assertions during interactions with a token endpoint;
general processing rules are also specified.

The intent of this specification is to provide a common framework for
OAuth 2.0 to interwork with other identity systems using assertions
and to provide alternative client authentication mechanisms.

Note that this specification only defines abstract message flows and
processing rules.  In order to be implementable, companion
specifications are necessary to provide the corresponding concrete
instantiations.

This document is a product of the Web Authorization Protocol Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
