Default Need to impersonate Windows Authentication in Web.config file


My current code is as below:

<authentication mode="Windows" />
<identity impersonate="true" userName="user_name" password="pwd" />

If I remove the identity element, UI does't populate data. My requirement is to use windows authentication instead of hard coded user name.
Can you please suggest how can I replace userName="user_name" password="pwd" with logged in windows user?

you have part of it
     <authentication mode="Windows" />
        <deny users="?" />
        <allow users="*"/>
authorization node denys anonymous while allowing all authenicated users.
