How to: Configure Target Services for Full Dialog Security (Transact-SQL)
SQL Server uses dialog security for any conversation to a service for which a remote service binding exists in the database that hosts the initiating service. When the database that hosts the target service contains a user that corresponds to the user that created the dialog, then the dialog uses full security.
To make sure that a target service uses dialog security, create a user for the initiating service to log in as. For each initiating service, create a user and install the certificate for the initiating user. Notice that a target service does not use a remote service binding.
To configure a target service for full dialog security
Create a user without a login.
Create a certificate for the user.
The certificate must be encrypted with the master key. For more information, see CREATE MASTER KEY (Transact-SQL).
Make that user the owner of the target service.
Back up the certificate to a file.
Security Note: Only back up the certificate for this user. Do not back up or distribute the private key associated with the certificate.
Grant permission for the target service user to receive messages from the queue that the target service uses.
Provide the certificate and the name of the initiating service to the database administrator for the remote database.
For SQL Server to use full dialog security, the certificate must be installed in the remote database, and the user for the certificate must be the user specified in the remote service binding for the target service.
Obtain a certificate for a user in the remote database from a trusted source. Typically, this involves sending the certificate using encrypted e-mail or transferring the certificate on physical media such as a floppy disk.
Security Note: Only install certificates from trusted sources.
Create a user without a login.
Install the certificate for the initiating service. The user created in the previous step owns the certificate.
Create a user without a login for the initiating service certificate.
Grant permission for the initiating user to send messages to the target service.
