I understand MS recommends claims-based authentication for new installations of SP 2010. This authentication model is based on WIF. It is a new authentication model available in SP 2010.

But, I would like to know:

  • Why it is recommended to use claims-based authentication in new installations?
  • When should I pick claims-based authentication over classic authentication? and visa verse.
