<ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("comImpersonationLevel", DefaultValue := ProcessModelComImpersonationLevel.Impersonate)>
Public Property ComImpersonationLevel As ProcessModelComImpersonationLevel

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.
   Dim comImpLevel _
   As ProcessModelComImpersonationLevel = _

' Set the ComImpersonationLevel property to
' ProcessModelComImpersonationLevel.Anonymous.
   processModelSection.ComImpersonationLevel = _
