How to use impersonation in 2.0

Based on MSDN, I attempted to use the following recommended code snippet in my web.config file.

<authentication mode=...
<identity impersonate="true" username="TestUser" password="P@ssw0rd" />
...
</authentication>
When I launch the application, I receive the following error:
Unrecognized element 'identity"
Does anyone know how to make this work?

impersonate goes in the system.web bit not authentication

<system.web>
<identity impersonate="true" userName="myUser" password="myPassword"/>
</system.web>
