Does the Windows Phone 7 App only supports Basic Authentication?

Yes, currently the WP7 App only supports Basic Authentication (over SSL).

There are two options to realize this:


1. You need a SharePoint Web Application which has Basic Authentication as authentication provider.
Here are two Microsoft articles on how to configure this:

2. You need to configure Microsoft ISA, TMG or UAG to setup a Basic Authentication endpoint 'in front' of SharePoint

This results in a solution where your phone úses Basic Authentication to ISA, TMG or UAG (the endpoint) and the endpoint can use any other supported Authentication method towards Sharepoint (
Windows Authentication, Forms Based Authentication, ...)
