Application Identity

The Application Identity (AppIDSvc) service determines and verifies the identity of an application. Disabling this service will prevent AppLocker from being enforced. This service is installed by default and its startup type is Manual. When the Application Identity service is started in its default configuration, it logs on by using the Local Service account.

The Application Identity service is dependent on the following system components:

  • AppID Driver
  • Flt Mgr
  • System Attribute Cache
  • Cryptographic Services
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • DCOM Server Process Launcher
  • RPC Endpoint Mapper
