    <identity impersonate="true" /> meaning

    Hi, I would like to know what exactly does the <identity impersonate="true" /> in the Web.config file mean? Does it give full access rights to ANYONE to do ANYTHING in ANY folder or does it only give the authenticated user his own rights as ASPNET or IUSR_MACHINENAME account?

    Thanks,
    Timmy

    It allows the credentials of the authenticated user to impersonate the identity under which the application process thread executes. The setting does not grant any permissions.

    See the following for more info:
