Neither the desktop nor the mobile clients support certificate authentication at this point, see below for details.

The Desktop Client (which has the same codebase for all OSes), has https://github.com/owncloud/mirall/issues/69 filed for that. It's not yet scheduled for any release, but if you look at the bug report, someone has volunteered to look into it, although it's been a few weeks since I last heard of him.

The interesting question from my (the client) perspective is: (how) did you make it work on the server? IMHO client certificates are only interesting if ownCloud automatically maps them to a user (as opposed to just being in front of http basic auth as a second layer), and afaik there is no user backend for the server that implements such functionality.

Haven't tested that yet myself. The man page indicates that it does.
