Resource mapping is the process of tying a particular file type to a process in the web server that can serve that type of file to a requesting client and to identify which file types are not to be delivered to a client.
By not specifying which files can and cannot be served to a user, the web server could deliver to a user web server configuration files, log files, password files, etc.
The web server must only allow hosted application file types to be served to a user, and all other types must be disabled.
