We are starting to test iPhone and its connectivity to Exchange via ActiveSync. I was wondering if it is possible to authenticate iPhone device using certificates. So connection via ActiveSync will require two way verification: iPhone verifying server certificates and server verifying iPhone certificates. This is to stop users from usning unauthorized devices on our network.

Yes you can. Best way to do that is with the iPhone Configuration Utility found here:

Also take a look at the deployment guide here:

Is the private key for the client certificate in the keychain and protected by phone's passcode?
will the iphone connect to activesync using its client certificate before entering the phone's passcode?
