Looking forward hearing your replies.

The BDC only surfaces information from the LOB.

If you use PassThrough, it will use the credentials of the logged in user  to communicate with the backend system. If the LOB is on another server (most likely it is) PassThrough won't work because of the double hop issue. The WFE can't impersonate credentials for the logged in user. The buck stops at the WFE.
If you use RevertToSelf, it will use the credentials of the running webparts web application pool identity.
If you use a DbProvider SqlServer and PassThrough and provide RdbUsername and RdbPassword, it will attempt to connect as that SqlServer user.
If you use SingleSignOn and provide the application id, it will use the SSO database and provider to connect to the LOB as that user.

Is this what you wanted?
