HDLC is used on point-to-pont serial links suc as T1s, DS3 and now

Packet-over-SONET (POS). It has a low overhead in terms of the

additional bytes required over and above the layer 3 payload. There is

no authentication protocol for HDLC.

PPP was and is heavily used in async dial-up and provide for

authentication using PAP or CHAP protocol. Now there is also PPP over

Ethernet (PPPoE).

A variation of PPP known as multi-link PPP (MLPPP) is quite popular for

loading balancing parallet circuit like T1's.

On routers, hdlc is the default encapsulation method available on interfaces. It doesnt provide authentication while ppp provides authentication so can be used isdn configs.
