Certificate-based authentication - that is, having the client browser have
a private key and certificate pair that the server looks at to determine
identity and allow a user to log in (such as a Smart Card, PKI, etc.) - is
not currently implemented in the Guacamole Client.

You can accomplish it in other ways, though.  I can think of at least two
off the top of my head, and a third possibility:
- CAS SSO, which is supported by Guacamole, also supports Client
Certificate Authentication (PKI), so you could implement it in CAS and then
use that module in Guacamole to authenticate.
- The Header module could be used in a similar way, authenticating the
certificate via the web server (I'm reasonably certain that both Apache
httpd and Nginx support this) and then pass through that identity in an
HTTP header
- I wouldn't be surprised if OpenID also supports some form of
certificate-based authentication, though I'm not entirely certain about
