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 Commented Jun 4, 2013 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 Commented Jun 4, 2013 at 6:49
  • windows authentication is possible or not in office 365 Commented Jun 4, 2013 at 6:53
  • It is possible if you have configured ADFS between your AD and Office 365 Commented Jun 4, 2013 at 6:56

    if adfs is configured then how we authenticate user without username name and password Commented Jun 4, 2013 at 6:58
