We deprecated the session-fw and authentication-fw because today there
are better ways of doing the same stuff. But although these blocks are
deprecated, they will be supported for a long time. So it's safe to use
them :)

The authentication-fw will be replaced by the auth stuff you mention
above. There is currently not that much documentation (apart from the
javadocs), but you can have a look at The CoWarp framework has been
donated to Cocoon and that's the base of the auth block.

Both authentication-fw and c-auth work very similar with the difference
that c-auth is pojo based while the authentication-fw uses pipelines (we
added the authenticator interface later on, but that's more a workaround).

You can find a sample for c-auth in the portal block.
