Local group authorization

    I'm trying to do some role-base authorization in web.config with groups that
    exist on the server machine but not in the domain which the server is a part
    of. An unqualified group name in the <allow roles="..."> setting will be
    assumed to be a domain group name. I can qualify the group name with the
    local machine name, however this web application will be deployed on a
    variety of machines, and I am looking for a generic way to specify the local
    machine (akin to the "BUILTIN" qualifier you can use for the Administrators
    group). Does such a keyword exist? I have tried
    LOCALHOST,LOCALMACHINE,LOCALSYSTEM. My only other option would seem to be
    to modify the web.config at install time and put the actual machine name in
    there programmatically.

    Thanks,
    Jeremy
