    IMHO, in this way, the authentication mechanism becomes unusable.
    I think, a better solution is to enable Windows Authentication in IIS Express (applicationhost.config file in your user profile). I did that here (not in english but easy to understand): http://maran.ro/2012/09/06/activare-windowsauthentication-pe-iis-express-8-vs2012/

    Mine is currently as follows:
    +authentication>
    +anonymousAuthentication enabled=”false” />
    +basicAuthentication enabled=”false” />
    +clientCertificateMappingAuthentication enabled=”false” />
    +digestAuthentication enabled=”false” />
    +iisClientCertificateMappingAuthentication enabled=”false”>
    +/iisClientCertificateMappingAuthentication>
    +windowsAuthentication enabled=”true”>
    +providers>
    +add value=”Negotiate” />
    +add value=”NTLM” />
    +/providers>
    +/windowsAuthentication>
    +/authentication>
