I've one web application on SharePoint 2010. I've root site collection MainSite. Also I have another site collectionSubSite hosted on http://MainSite/SubSite.

Question: Is it possible to have Anonymous authentication for MainSite and Claims-based for SubSite within one WebApp? Or I have to use different web apps for this?

TIA

The answer to your question is Yes! you would configure you Web Application to use claims based authentication and then enable Anonymous access on the root site collection and then turn it off for the subsite. See the documentation here
