      Poll and Ping Modes with Pairwise Identifiers
      In order to use the Poll or Ping mode with Pairwise Pseudonymous Identifiers (PPIDs), the Client needs to register a URI that is of its ownership and use it during the authentication process in a way that demonstrates that the URI belongs to it, which allows the OP to consider the host component of that URI as the Sector Identifier for the pairwise identifier calculation per Section 8.1 of OpenID Connect Core.
      The only way that CIBA generates Pairwise Pseudonymous Identifiers in Ping and Poll modes is by providing a "jwks_uri" at the registration phase when the "urn:openid:params:grant-type:ciba" grant type is registered. In that way the OpenID Provider can use the host component of the "jwks_uri" as the Sector Identifier to generate the PPIDs for the Client. So, when an OpenID Provider that supports PPIDs receives a dynamic registration request for a Client that indicates that it wishes to use the Poll or Ping CIBA modes, it MUST check if a valid "jwks_uri" is set when the "subject_type" is "pairwise". If a "sector_identifier_uri" is explicitly provided, then the "jwks_uri" must be included in the list of URIs pointed to by the "sector_identifier_uri".
      But having registered a "jwks_uri" is not enough to use PPIDs, Client needs somehow to demonstrate that such "jwks_uri" belongs to it, which can be accomplished by proving possession of a private key corresponding to one of the public keys published at the "jwks_uri". Such proof can be demonstrated with signed authentication requests using the asymmetric keys provided by the "jwks_uri" or by authenticating to the OP using one of the following two mechanisms in conjunction with a key from its "jwks_uri":

      Using the Self-Signed Certificate Mutual TLS OAuth Client Authentication Method as defined in section 2.2 of [I-D.ietf-oauth-mtls].
      Using the private_key_jwt method as per the section 9 Client Authentication of [OpenID.Core].
