Named Pipes Channel

February 14, 2003 Written by Charles Cook

Commenting on my recent post about the TCP channel, Duncan Smart suggested a look at Jonathan Hawkins' Named Pipes Channel sample. I've not had a chance to investigate it yet but the use of named pipes sounds promising from a security point of view, at least in the scenario I'm interested in where a server application consists of multiple processes on the same machine. The Named Pipes channel could be extended to restrict access to the pipe(s) to specified accounts and so make the use of Remoting secure.
