Windows Authentication mode is the default connection mode for remote debugging. This mode uses Window's built-in authentication to provide a level of security comparable to a local login. You can use this mode for remote debugging of native or managed code.

For native code, the Remote Debugging Monitor also provides an alternative mode, called No Authentication mode. No Authentication mode is faster but is not secure, so it should only be used when network speed is more important than security, such as a slow internal network. For more information, see How to: Set Up "No Authentication" Mode.

Caution noteCaution

Granting debugging permission to a user gives that user power to execute any arbitrary code on the machine where you grant permission. You should grant this permission only to users who you completely trust to execute code on the machine.
