  Permissions

To execute a module specified with EXECUTE AS, the caller must have EXECUTE permissions on the module.

To execute a CLR module specified with EXECUTE AS that accesses resources in another database or server, the target database or server must trust the authenticator of the database from which the module originates (the source database). For more information about how to establish authenticator trust, see Extending Database Impersonation by Using EXECUTE AS.

To specify the EXECUTE AS clause when you create or modify a module, you must have IMPERSONATE permissions on the specified principal and also permissions to create the module. You can always impersonate yourself. When no execution context is specified or EXECUTE AS CALLER is specified, IMPERSONATE permissions are not required.

To specify a login_name or user_name that has implicit access to the database through a Windows group membership, you must have CONTROL permissions on the database.

could you do selective permissions on the impersonate command
what would you change in the following to just give that permissions to YoonM, and not anything else special?

USE master;
GRANT IMPERSONATE ON LOGIN::WanidaBenshoof to [AdvWorks\YoonM];
GO
