Directory Server Enterprise Edition (DSEE) allows LDAP clients to authenticate to the server using an SSL client certificate instead of the standard bind DN and password combination. When a client provides its certificate to the server, the server must map the information in that certificate to exactly one user entry in the directory. This mapping rules are configured in the configuration file
<server_instance>/alias/certmap.conf. This document details the certmap.conf format and available configuration options.
