ASP.NET state server lockdown
Early & Adopter, comes this tip on locking down the asp.net state service to local access only
This is great.. I ran into this just the other day when a fellow developer was looking for a way to secure the state service on an intranet. The networking guys didn't want to add yet another firewall until end of summer, and the site is in continuous development so it can get updated twice a week. When people are using it 24/7, it's annoying to reset the state, but even more annoying when people have access to state-stealing utilities. This will solve both problems, without requiring more SQL licenses.
