Client certificate

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In cryptography, a client certificate is a type of digital certificate that is used by client systems to make authenticated requests to a remote server.[1] Client certificates play a key role in many mutual authentication designs, providing strong assurances of a requester's identity.
