      Additional OAuth Parameters for Authorization in Constrained
                           Environments (ACE)
                     draft-ietf-ace-oauth-params-13

Abstract

   This specification defines new parameters and encodings for the OAuth
   2.0 token and introspection endpoints when used with the framework
   for authentication and authorization for constrained environments
   (ACE).  These are used to express the proof-of-possession key the
   client wishes to use, the proof-of-possession key that the
   Authorization Server has selected, and the key the Resource Server
   uses to authenticate to the client.

1.  Introduction

   The Authentication and Authorization for Constrained Environments
   (ACE) specification [I-D.ietf-ace-oauth-authz] requires some new
   parameters for interactions with the OAuth 2.0 [RFC6749] token and
   introspection endpoints, as well as some new claims to be used in
   access tokens.  These parameters and claims can also be used in other
   contexts and have therefore been put into a dedicated document, to
   facilitate their use in a manner independent of
   [I-D.ietf-ace-oauth-authz].

   Note that although all examples are shown in Concise Binary Object
   Respresentation (CBOR) [RFC7049], JSON [RFC8259] MAY be used as an
   alternative for HTTP-based communications, as specified in
   [I-D.ietf-ace-oauth-authz].
