> Abstract:
>     The authorization request in OAuth 2.0 described in RFC 6749 utilizes
>     query parameter serialization, which means that Authorization Request
>     parameters are encoded in the URI of the request and sent through
>     user agents such as web browsers.  While it is easy to implement, it
>     means that (a) the communication through the user agents are not
>     integrity protected and thus the parameters can be tainted, and (b)
>     the source of the communication is not authenticated.  Because of
>     these weaknesses, several attacks to the protocol have now been put
>     forward.
>
>     This document introduces the ability to send request parameters in a
>     JSON Web Token (JWT) instead, which allows the request to be signed
>     with JSON Web Signature (JWS) and/or encrypted with JSON Web
>     Encryption (JWE) so that the integrity, source authentication and
>     confidentiality property of the Authorization Request is attained.
>     The request can be sent by value or by reference.
