Calling Web Service from Windows Service - any security issues? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application that runs as a Windows Service.  I also have Web Services that reside on a public Web Server out in www land.  I would like to call/use some of my Web Services in my Windows Service application.  I've had no problems calling/using these services from standard Windows Forms application.  However, my Windows Service runs under the System account ... soooo, will I run into any security issues when my Windows Service attempts to call my Web Service?

    Thanks, Rob.

    P.S.  I posted this question in another forum but apparently this is the place for .NET security questions ... since I can't find a forum specific to security, I posted in this one since I see other security related posts.
