[Openid-specs-ab] Profile for using SCIM with OpenID Connect

Please find attached, a draft proposal from Chuck Mortimore and myself on using SCIM as an alternate endpoint for profile services in the context of Connect.

This specification defines:
a. Discovery metadata (scim_endpoint) indicating availability of a SCIM Protocol base endpoint
b. Dynamic registration metadata (scim_profile) used to indicate a client intends to use SCIM in addition to or instead of UserInfo
c. An additional ID Token claim (scim_id and scim_location) which specifies the SCIM resource endpoint and identifier associated with the authenticated subject.

By doing this, clients can avoid having to do an external authorization and another round of exchanges to access User profile information with full CRUD features.

Clients can also access SCIM’s more sophisticated query system to ask questions if the authenticated user has particular conditions (e.g. querying a sub-attribute such as “country” in the “addresses” attribute).  

As an example use case: A cloud provider wants to build a user-profile self-service portal. OIDC does the authentication of the user and allows the web service to access the CRUD features of SCIM for the updates.
