REVIEW-29: SDIACT-239 Update to support OAuth 2.0 - Test Readiness Review


CILogon provides XSEDE users certificates that they can use to authenticate to XSEDE SPs using their campus InCommon credentials. This is just another way of authenticating to XSEDE SPs and thus does NOT replace the standard authentication mechanisms that XSEDE users use. SDIACT-239 enhances the CILogon service to support the OAuth 2.0 protocol.
