Topic Description

Remote Service Bindings

Describes setting the certificate that the broker uses for dialog security. Dialog security provides end-to-end encryption and remote authorization for conversations to specific services.


Describes specifying the location of the service and the database that contains the service. A route is required for Service Broker to deliver messages. By default, each database contains a route that specifies that services with no other route defined are delivered within the current instance.

Service Broker Endpoints

Describes configuring SQL Server to send and receive messages over TCP/IP connections. Endpoints can provide transport security, which prevents unauthorized connections to the endpoint.
