Hi

I've just started experimenting with a Broker App, and I'm trying to understand the security of it

Is it possible for the Broker app to receive requests from other processes other than my Add-On?

Also, is there anyway for the broker app to initiate a communication with my Add-On or can it only respond to requests

Thanks

Hi Ian,

Yes, it is possible. E.g. you can communicate with a local service running under the LocalSystem account. But you need to implement it yourself.

Also, is there anyway for the broker app to initiate a communication with my Add-On or can it only respond to requests.

You can respond to requests only.
