ComImpersonationLevel Property

ProcessModelSection.ComImpersonationLevel Property

Gets or sets a value indicating the level of authentication for COM security.

Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("comImpersonationLevel", DefaultValue = ProcessModelComImpersonationLevel.Impersonate)]
public ProcessModelComImpersonationLevel ComImpersonationLevel { get; set; }

When this property value is set to Default, DCOM determines the impersonation level using its normal security-negotiation algorithm. The default value assigned to this property, as specified in the Machine.config file, is Impersonate. In this case, the server process can impersonate the client's security context while acting on behalf of the client.

The following code example shows how to access the ComImpersonationLevel property.

                // Get the current ComImpersonationLevel property value.
                ProcessModelComImpersonationLevel comImpLevel = 

                // Set the ComImpersonationLevel property to
                // ProcessModelComImpersonationLevel.Anonymous.
                processModelSection.ComImpersonationLevel =
