One-to-one mapping maps individual client certificates to Windows user accounts. The server compares the copy of the client certificate it holds with the client certificate that is sent by the browser. The two must be identical for the mapping to proceed. If a client gets another certificate containing all of the same user information, it must be mapped again.
