Are accounts like ASPNET, IWAM_<machine_name> and IUSR_<machine_name>
members of the Authenticated Users group ?

Sorry if these seems like a stupid question, but I can't seem to find a
definition of the membership of this group that makes this clear.

TIA

Steve

AU is not a real group - it is a special security principal that stands for
any and all sessions that have been authenticated using some account such as
a local SAM account, domain account or an account from any trusted domain.

Basically, Authenticated users contains any user account existent in your
database!

My 2 cents
