It's not possible to do this for different files in the same application (the same folder in IIS), but you could do this either by putting the web services in a separate application or by putting them in a sub-folder of your web application and including a second web.config that tags them as permitting anonymous access.

In this example, he wants to override the type to session state, but it would work just as well for the Authorization section of your web.config:

Here's a much more in-depth CodeProject article about working with multiple nested web.config files:
