Authorization Component


  A set of data items issued to an RP by an IdP during an identity federation transaction that grants the RP authorized access to a set of APIs (e.g., an OAuth access token). This credential can be separate from the assertion provided by the federation protocol (e.g., an OpenID Connect ID Token).
