    At this time only Basic Authentication is supported for using SharePoint with Federated Search. Unfortunately basic authentication is seldom ever used in production SharePoint environments due to security concerns. It is possible to build something custom with the provided SDK; however it would be easier to administer and likely utilized more if additional authentication methods were supported as standard. Common methods that should be supported are Windows Authentication and SAML for SharePoint Online/Office 365 environments.
