             Summary: OIDC DataProvider should support client_credentials clients 
                 Key: FEDIZ-172
             Project: CXF-Fediz
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: OIDC
            Reporter: Sergey Beryozkin

to get an access token it is much simpler for such a client to simply authenticate directly
with the 

In this case the step involving the client authenticating with STS will be done by AccessTokenService.

Both approaches are equivalent but the latter is simpler for the client and makes the client
