New issue 567: Basic - Use grant type code instead of implicit grant

tlodderstedt on Fri, 6 Apr 2012 22:49:49 +0200:

I would suggest to change the Basic Client Profile to use authorization codes instead of the implicit grant. In my opinion, code has the following advantages:
  - It is simpler to implement for web applications.
  - It is better suited for mobile apps because of the support for refresh tokens.
  - The ability to transmit large user data chunks over a back channel instead  of the front channel is beneficially for mobile web applications, which most likely run on high latency, low bandwitdh network connections.
  - It is more secure due to the transmission of longer-lasting secrets via back channels only.
