Connecting applications: Trusted Applications VS. OAuth

I am trying to realise an integrated environment with different atlassian products.
While configuring the applications links there are two different options of authentication.

But what kind of authentication is the recommended one?

Alright thanks. :)
One question about OAuth, is the "execute as" user needed or not? It seems that there is a difference between the App Link versions.
