If Your Clients Have Certificates, Consider Using Client Certificate Authentication

- J.D. Meier, Carlos Farre, Jason Taylor, Prashant Bansode, Steve Gregersen, Madhu Sundararajan, Rob Boucher

Client certificates can authenticate a client service account or multiple users to a WCF service. If you use a client certificate for each user, you can map each certificate to a Windows account.

Enable the Windows account mapping feature by setting the mapClientCertificateToWindowsAccount attribute to true.
<serviceCredentials>
    <clientCertificate>
        <authentication mapClientCertificateToWindowsAccount="true" />
    </clientCertificate>
</serviceCredentials>
