[android-developers] Re: How to identify which client called into a Remote/AIDL service?

I don't know if there's a more proper way to do what you need, but it
makes sense that there should be.

In the worst case though, you can solve this through your own
protocol... you can require clients call an initialization to receive
some random value you provide (and store, to associate with them), and
all of your other entry points can require that this value be among
the parameters.
