HttpContext.Current.User vs. Thread.CurrentPrincipal - ASP.NET Security

How are HttpConext.Current.User and Thread.CurrentPrincipal different? It seems that they can be set differently in different places. Why would one use one and not the other? Thanks, Michael...

    Default Re: HttpContext.Current.User vs. Thread.CurrentPrincipal

    Use HttpConext.Current.User for all web (ASPX/ASMX) applications.

    Use Thread.CurrentPrincipal for all other applications like winForms,
    console and windows service applications.

    ASP.NET support various authentication schemes in additions to windows
    authentication.



    Use How are HttpConext.Current.User for web application, more precisly
