The default is Identification. This attribute is of type TokenImpersonationLevel.
Setting this property to true allows authentication to downgrade to NTLM if Kerberos is not available.
Setting this property to false causes Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to make a best-effort to throw an exception if NTLM is used. Note that setting this property to false may not prevent NTLM credentials from being sent over the wire.
