Advanced Settings Dialog Box - Windows Authentication Feature

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Use the Advanced Settings dialog box to specify whether Windows authentication is performed in kernel mode. By default, IIS enables kernel-mode authentication, which may improve authentication performance and prevent authentication problems with application pools configured to use a custom identity.

As a best practice, do not disable this setting if you use Kerberos authentication and have a custom identity on the application pool.
