OIDC identity provider authentication for Amazon EKS

OpenID Connect (OIDC) Identity Provider (IDP) authentication for Amazon EKS clusters. This feature allows customers to integrate an OIDC identity provider with a new or existing Amazon EKS cluster running Kubernetes version 1.16 or later. OpenID Connect is an interoperable authentication protocol based on the OAuth 2.0 family of specifications. It adds a thin layer that sits on top of OAuth 2.0 that adds login and profile information about the identity of who is logged in.
