I asked this question @StackOverflow[1] but maybe this is a better location for it:

I try to connect to a SharePoint Online instance via a WPF-Application (C#). I have found this article[2] that discribes a possible solution but the problem is that the specific instance has a Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) infront and I don't know how to get the auth-token. (I can't create a certificate for my application to authentificate against the adfs.)

Anyone who have already done this and can support me with some code snippets?

Working against a claims based SharePoint site unfortunately isn't simple. The best resource is probably the blog Share-n-dipity the article Using the Client Object Model with a Claims Based Auth Site in SharePoint 2010 has code for a Windows Forms app which might be a good starting point.
