Inter-Process Communication (IPC) refers specifically to the mechanisms an Operating System provides to allow processes the Operating System manages to share data.

Typically, applications can use IPC categorized as clients and servers, where the client requests data and the server responds to client requests.

Many applications are both clients and servers, as commonly seen in distributed computing.

Methods for achieving IPC are divided into categories which vary based on software requirements, such as performance and modularity requirements, and system circumstances, such as network bandwidth and latency.
