    Is it ok to use impersonation in the web.config file for a web service?

    Let me tell you why I ask. My web service to ultimately connection to a sql
    server database. The recommended way to connect to SqlServer is to use a
    trusted connection (nt authentication etc), but inorder for me to do this I
    want to change the user my webservice (aspnet_wp) is running under - don't
    I? Hence the use of the Impersonation element in the web.config file. I
    suppose I could use normal authentication to SqlServer but that means I have
    to keep a username and password somewhere.

    BYW, I'm using WSE 2.0 for authentication - don't know if this would make a
    difference.

    Thanks for any help

  2. Well, you can potentially run a different "Datalayer" component under a
    different user who can access the database.
