Mutual Authentication is a security feature in which a client process must prove its identity to a server, and the server must prove its identity to the client, before any application traffic is sent over the client-to-server connection. Support for mutual authentication is provided by the security support provider interface (SSPI) and is exposed directly through the SSPI APIs and services that layer upon SSPI, including RPC and COM+.
