I have a public facing website and on the homepage there are few contents that I want to show only to Authenticated Users.. Anonymous users should not be able to see it, what Permissions String should I use?

I guess ViewPages and ViewListItems will do? But can someone confirm please..

You can use set AuthenticationRestrictions="AuthenticatedUsersOnly" Example:

<SharePoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl runat="server" AuthenticationRestrictions="AuthenticatedUsersOnly">
