    i think we can do using identify setting of app pool in IIS.
    Open IIS Manager.
    In the Connections pane, expand the server node and click Application Pools.
    On the Application Pools page, select the application pool for which you want to specify an identity, and then click Advanced Settings in the Actions pane.
    For the Identity property, click the ... button to open the Application Pool Identity dialog box.
    If you want to use a built-in account, select the Built-in account option and select an account from the list.
    If you want to use a custom identity, select the Custom account option and click Set to open the Set Credentials dialog box. Then type the custom account name in the User name text box, type a password in the Password text box, retype the password in the Confirm password text box, and then click OK.

    while giving user name and password, specify the windows login credentials so that it act as windows authentication. hope this will helpful.
