    So,

    Domain Users group contains all Users from the Domain the group belongs to. < domain group
    Authenticated Users contains local users, domain users and Users from Trusted Domains too. < local group

    Is the above statement correct?

    As far as im aware an Authenticated User is any domain useraccount that has been Authenticated by the domain controller.

    I may be wrong.

    I think so, but an anonymous user is not included.

    The Authenticated Users group includes all users who are authenticated into the network by using a valid user account. Wen assigning perms you can use the Authenticated Users group in place of the Everyone group to prevent anonymous access to resouces.

    Also to note in server 2003 (and XP) onwards(well I assume so) the everyone group no longer automatically includes the anonymous user group

    Yeah sure mate:D anonymous users are membersof the Everyone group,these users might unlnowingly be granted access to resources intended only for authenticated users(windows NT and 2000). but in server 2003the Anonymous Logon group is no longer a member of the Everyone group.this implies that any anonymous users attempting to access resources hosted on computers runing Windows Server 2003 will be impacted. If anonymous users must be granted to resources, you must explicitly add the Anonymous Logon security group to the access control list for the resource and provide the required perms.
