OpenIG's ClientRegistration class appears to support client_secret_basic or client_secret_post to authenticate to the OIDC token endpoint.
It's requested that private_key_jwt is also supported.

Comment by Violette Roche Montane [ 25/Jan/17 ]

It is pretty hard to find a provider to test the new implementation. Any ideas are welcome.

Note that salesforce does support the private_key_jwt authentication but their implementation does not respect the OIDC RFC. For further info, see salesforce documentation.
They use

grant_type= urn%3Aietf%3Aparams%3Aoauth%3Agrant-type%3Ajwt-bearer&assertion=eyJpc3MiOiAiM01WRz...[omitted for brevity]...ZT

instead of:

client_assertion=PHNhbWxwOl ... ZT

as specified in the RFC.
