The Boot Information Negotiation Layer (BINL) service is an optional service that you will probably not find in your Services Control Panel. Boot Information Negotiation Layer is available on Windows 2000 and beyond only when you install Remote Installation Services (RIS). BINL, along with Single Instance Storage Groveler and Trivial FTP Daemon, is just one of the services that get added to your server when Remote Installation Services are installed.

Remote Installation Services allow businesses the ability to remotely install new operating systems and programs on employees' computers without the assistance of an IT professional. BINL's sole purpose is to assist in that pursuit. BINL's jobs include: making certain that the client computer received the correct configuration and policy settings during the operating system installation, answering client service requests, verifying user's logon information with the Active Directory, and querying the Active Directory for the client computer. As you can see, BINL is essential to the operation of RIS.

Obviously, the average home user will never need to deal with the Boot Information Negotiation Layer service, but if you are an IT administrator that uses Remote Installation Services, you should be familiar with what this service does.
