1.  Introduction

   This document includes additional features for the Grant Negotiation
   and Authorization Protocol (GNAP) [GNAP], and presumes familiarity
   and knowledge of GNAP.

   *Terminology*

   This document uses the following terms defined in [GNAP]:

   *  authN

   *  authZ

   *  Authorization

   *  Authorization URI (AZ URI)

   *  Claim

   *  Client

   *  Registered Client

   *  Grant

Internet-DraThe Grant Negotiation and Authorization Protocol   June 2020


   *  Grant Server (GS)

   *  Grant URI

   *  Grant Request

   *  Grant Response

   *  GS URI

   *  Interaction

   *  NumericDate

   *  Resource Owner (RO)

   *  Resource Server (RS)

   *  User

   *Notational Conventions*

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   specification are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

   Certain security-related terms are to be understood in the sense
   defined in [RFC4949].  These terms include, but are not limited to,
   "attack", "authentication", "authorization", "certificate",
   "confidentiality", "credential", "encryption", "identity", "sign",
   "signature", "trust", "validate", and "verify".

   Unless otherwise noted, all the protocol parameter names and values
   are case sensitive.

   Some protocol parameters are parts of a JSON document, and are
   referred to in JavaScript notation.  For example, foo.bar refers to
   the "bar" boolean attribute in the "foo" object in the following
   example JSON document:

   {
       "foo" : {
           "bar": true
       }
   }

2.  Grant Management APIs

   In addition to creating and reading a Grant as specified in GNAP The
   Client MAY list, update, delete, and discover a Grant.

2.1.  List Grants

   The Client MAY list the Grants provided to the Client by doing an a
   GET on the GS URI.  The GS MUST respond with a list of Grant URIs [
   format TBD] or one of the following errors:

   *  TBD

   from Error Responses Section 8.

2.2.  Update Grant

   The Client updates a Grant by doing an HTTP PUT of a JSON document to
   the corresponding Grant URI.

   The JSON document MUST include the following from the [GNAP] Grant
   Request JSON:

   *  iat

   *  uri set to the Grant URI

   and MAY include the following from the [GNAP] Grant Request JSON:

   *  user

   *  interaction

   *  authorization or authorizations

   *  claims

   The GS MUST respond with one of the standard GNAP responses (Grant
   Response, Interaction Response, Wait Response) or one of the
   following errors:

   *  TBD

   from Error Responses Section 8.

   Following is a non-normative example where the Client wants to update
   the Grant Request with additional claims:

   {
       "iat"       : 15790460234,
       "uri"       : "https://as.example/endpoint/grant/example3",
       "claims": {
           "oidc": {
               "userinfo" : {
                   "email"          : { "essential" : true },
                   "name"           : { "essential" : true },
                   "picture"        : null
               }
           }
       }
   }

2.3.  Delete Grant

   The Client deletes a Grant by doing an HTTP DELETE of the
   corresponding Grant URI.

   The GS MUST respond with OK 200, or one of the following errors:

   *  TBD

   from Error Responses Section 8.

2.4.  Grant Options

   The Client can get the supported operations for a Grant by doing an
   HTTP OPTIONS of the corresponding Grant URI.

   The GS MUST respond with the supported methods

   [Format TBD]

   or one of the following errors:

   *  TBD

   from Error Responses Section 8.

3.  Authorization Management APIs

   In addition to reading an Authorization as specified in [GNAP], The
   Client MAY update, delete, and discover an Authorization.

Internet-DraThe Grant Negotiation and Authorization Protocol   June 2020


3.1.  Update Authorization

   The Client updates an Authorization by doing an HTTP PUT to the
   corresponding AZ URI of the following JSON.  All of the following
   MUST be included.

   *  *iat* - the time of the request as a NumericDate.

   *  *uri* - the AZ URI.

   *  *authorization* - the new authorization requested per the [GNAP]
      Grant Request JSON "authorization" object.

   The GS MUST respond with a GNAP Authorization JSON document, or one
   of the following errors:

   *  TBD

   from Error Responses Section 8.

3.2.  Delete Authorization

   The Client deletes an Authorization by doing an HTTP DELETE to the
   corresponding AZ URI.

   The GS MUST respond with OK 200, or one of the following errors:

   *  TBD

   from Error Responses Section 8.

   A GS MAY indicate support for this feature by including the "DELETE"
   method in the AZ URI OPTIONS response.

3.3.  Authorization Options

   The Client can get the supported operations for an Authorization by
   doing an HTTP OPTIONS of the corresponding AZ URI.

   The GS MUST respond with the supported methods

   [Format TBD]

   or one of the following errors:

   *  TBD

   from Error Responses Section 8.

4.  Reciprocal Grant

   Party A and Party B both want to obtain a Grant from the other party.
   Each party will be both Client and GS.  This would require two
   complete GNAP flows with an awkward redirect between them, and the
   User may have to authenticate multiple times as context is lost.
   Reciprocal Grant simplifies the User experience.

   In the following sequence, steps 1 - 7 & 9 are a standard GNAP
   sequence.

                 Party A                            Party B

                +--------+                         +--------+

   1.   *Create Grant A* Party A makes a Create Grant request to the
        Party B GS URI.

   2.   *Interaction Response* Party B returns an interaction response
        containing the Grant A URI.

   3.   *Read Grant A* Party A does an HTTP GET of the Grant A URI.

   4.   *Interaction Transfer* Party A transfers User interaction to the
        Party B.

   5.   *User Authentication* Party B authenticates the User.

   6.   *User Authorization* If required, Party B interacts with the
        User to determine which identity claims and/or authorizations in
        the Grant A Request are to be granted.

   7.   *Create GrantB* Party B creates its Grant B Request with
        user.reciprocal set to the Grant A URI that will be in the step
        (2) Grant A Response, and sends it with an HTTP POST to the
        Party A GS URI.  This enables Party A to correlate the Grant B
        Request and its Grant and the User.

   8.   *Grant S Response* Party B responds to Party A's Create Grant A
        Request with a Grant A Response.

   9.   *Interaction Transfer* Party B redirects the User to the
        Completion URI at Party A.

   10.  *User Authorization* If required, Party A interacts with the
        User to determine which identity claims and/or authorizations in
        Party B's Grant B Request are to be granted.

   11.  *Grant B Response* Party A responds with the Grant B Response.

   *  *reciprocal* - a new attribute of the [GNAP] Request JSON user
      object.  MUST be set to a Grant URI.

5.  GS Initiated Grant

   The User is at the GS, and wants to interact with a Registered
   Client.  The Client has previously configured an initiation_uri at
   the GS, and the Grant it requires.

   In this sequence, the GS creates a Grant and redirects the User to
   the Client's initiation_uri passing a Grant URI:

   +--------+                                  +-------+

   1.  *User Interaction* The GS interacts with the User to determine
       the Client and what identity claims and / or authorizations to
       provide.  The GS creates a Grant and corresponding Grant URI.

   2.  *GS Initiated Redirect* The GS redirects the User to the Client's
       initiation_uri, adding a query parameter with the name
       "grant_uri" and the value being the URL encoded Grant URI.

   3.  *Client Verification* The Client verifies the Grant URI starts
       with a GS URI from a GS the Client trusts.

   4.  *Read Grant* The Client does an HTTP GET of the Grant URI.

   5.  *Grant Response* The GS responds with a Grant Response.

   *  *initiation_uri* - a URI at the Client that contains no query or
      fragment.  How the GS learns the Client initiation_uri and require
      Grant is out of scope of this document.

6.  User Exists

   The Client may want to provide a different experience to the User
   depending on if a User already exists at the GS.  By including one or
   more identifiers in the Grant Request user.identifiers object, and
   setting user.exists to true, the GS MAY include a user.exists
   attribute in a GNAP Interaction Response.  The value is true if the
   GS has a user with one or more of the Client provided identifers, and
   false if not.

   *  *exists* - a new attribute of the "user" object.  If present in a
      GNAP Grant Request, it MUST be set to true.

   A GS indicates support for this feature by returning the
   features.user_exists attribute in the GS Options response set to
   true.

7.  Multiple Interactions

   There are situations where the Client can not, or prefers not, to ask
   for all identity claims and/or authorizations it requires.

   In this example sequence, the Client requests an identity claim to
   determine who the User is.  Once the Client learns who the User is,
   the Client updates the Grant for additional identity claims which the
   GS prompts the User for and returns to the Client.  Once those
   additional claims are received, the Client updates the Grant with the
   remaining identity claims required.

   1.   *Create Grant* The Client creates a Grant Request (CreateGrant)
        including an identity claim and interaction.global.multi set to
        true, and sends it with an HTTP POST to the GS GS URI.

   2.   *Interaction Response* The GS sends an Interaction Response
        containing the Grant URI and an interaction object, and
        interaction.global.multi set to true.

   3.   *Read Grant* The Client does an HTTP GET of the Grant URI.

   4.   *Interaction Transfer* The Client transfers User interaction to
        the GS.

   5.   *User Authentication* The GS authenticates the User.

   6.   *Grant Response* The GS responds with a Grant Response including
        the identity claim from User authentication and
        interaction.global.multi set to true.

   7.   *Grant Evaluation* The Client queries its User database and does
        not find a User record matching the identity claim.

   8.   *Update Grant* The Client creates an Update Grant Request
        Section 2.2 including the initial identity claims required and
        interaction.global.multi set to true, and sends it with an HTTP
        PUT to the Grant URI.

   9.   *User AuthN* The GS interacts with the User to determine which
        identity claims in the Update Grant Request are to be granted.

   10.  *Grant Response* The GS responds with a Grant Response including
        the identity claims released by the User and
        interaction.global.multi set to true.

   11.  *Grant Evaluation* The Client evaluates the identity claims in
        the Grant Response and determines the remaining User identity
        claim required.

   12.  *Update Grant* The Client creates an Update Grant Request
        Section 2.2 including the remaining required identity claims and
        interaction.global.multi set to false, and sends it with an HTTP
        PUT to the Grant URI.

   13.  *User AuthZ* The GS interacts with the User to determine which
        identity claims in the Update Grant Request are to be granted.

   14.  *Interaction Transfer* The GS transfers User interaction to the
        Client.

   15.  *Grant Response* The GS responds with a Grant Response including
        the identity claims released by the User and
        interaction.global.multi set to false.

   *  *multi* - a new boolean attribute of the GNAP interaction.global
      object.

   A GS indicates support for this feature by returning the
   features.interaction_multi attribute in the GS Options response set
   to true.
