This specification defines a new OAuth claim that allows a proxying OAuth client to pass identity information for a different OAuth client to an OAuth authorization server during a token request. The authorization server uses this additional identity information when populating the "client_id" and "cnf" fields of the returned access token instead of the identity information about the proxying client requesting the token.
