Connecting applications: Trusted Applications VS. OAuth

Hello everyone,

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.

I miss some information about two and three legged authentication.

Besides the security implications, is there any difference between the two?

I've done here a simple Confluence Macro, who connect to the Jira API with Trusted Application.
