Hi All,

I noticed that in the code for nuget.core there are classes that seem to help with scenarios where there is federated or STS authentication. However there isn't any available information on this. When I tried using NuGet client with a local STS enabled on a local version of NuGet gallery I only got so far where the NuGet client dumps the STS response (the HTML form with token embedded) onto the disk assuming it as the package content.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to get NuGet client and VS Extensions working within a SSO environment? Is it possible or is this a feature under development?
