This document describes OAuth client authentication and
certificate-bound access and refresh tokens using mutual Transport
Layer Security (TLS) authentication with X.509 certificates.  OAuth
clients are provided a mechanism for authentication to the
authorization server using mutual TLS, based on either self-signed
certificates or public key infrastructure (PKI). OAuth authorization
servers are provided a mechanism for binding access tokens to a
client's mutual-TLS certificate, and OAuth protected resources are
provided a method for ensuring that such an access token presented to
it was issued to the client presenting the token.

This document is a product of the Web Authorization Protocol Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track

for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
