The general answer is yes, you can use client credentials flow for machine to machine authentication scenarios.

The more specific answer will depend on what your backend looks like and what the kiosk/server will be doing. if both client and backend live on AWS then using combination of IAM policies, network security ...etc. could be other options to control access in machine to machine use-cases
