1.  Introduction

   OAuth 2.0 Token Introspection [RFC7662] specifies a method for a
   protected resource to query an OAuth 2.0 authorization server to
   determine the state of an access token and obtain data associated
   with the access token.  This allows deployments to implement
   identifier-based access tokens in an interoperable way.

   The introspection response, as specified in OAuth 2.0 Token
   Introspection [RFC7662], is a plain JSON object.  However, there are
   use cases where the resource server requires stronger assurance that
   the authorization server issued the access token, including cases
   where the authorization server assumes liability for the token's
   content.  An example is a resource server using verified person data
   to create certificates, which in turn are used to create qualified
   electronic signatures.

   In such use cases it may be useful or even required to return a
   signed JWT as the introspection response.  This specification extends
   the token introspection endpoint with the capability to return
   responses as JWTs.
