Is this 2013 or 2010? Most Office 365 do not use Windows authentication – Robert Lindgren Jun 4 '13 at 6:33
office 2013. i want this in winapps and i dont want to pass crediatial – Rajesh Joshi Jun 4 '13 at 6:38

Wictor Wilén has written an excellent guide for authenticating to Office 365 from Client object model here.

But he, and everybody else, uses FedAuth with a username / password combination. This is due to the fact that this is how most configurations are set up.

Microsoft has released this guide for doing Remote Authentication (Claims based!) via the Server Client Object Model but it is targeted for 2010, so it might not work 100%, or be the easiest way in 2013

I'm no expert in this, but wanted to submit you some great resources ti give you a starting point.

yes , i check this link and we have to pass username and password explicitly in this. i want to use window credential to login in office 365 – Rajesh Joshi Jun 4 '13 at 6:47
In Wiléns you do, as I pointed out. But the Microsoft guide uses Claims which is the default authentication type for 2013 – Robert Lindgren Jun 4 '13 at 6:49
windows authentication is possible or not in office 365 – Rajesh Joshi Jun 4 '13 at 6:53
It is possible if you have configured ADFS between your AD and Office 365 – Robert Lindgren Jun 4 '13 at 6:56
if adfs is configured then how we authenticate user without username name and password – Rajesh Joshi Jun 4 '13 at 6:58
