vb.net - RSA login to web server

I developed a tool on vb.net to connect to one of our company webservices by parsing webpages and automating user mouse clicks.

Recently my company introduced a web authentication using RSA token key (username, password, pin+token) and now my tool don't work anymore.

Navigating with internet explorer, I can login to authentication webpage and from that moment I get access to all the company web pages (also on other servers) but if I close Internet Explorer and start a new Internet Explorer session, I am forced to perform a new authentication. So I understood that the authentication is saved within the Internet Explorer session.

 

How could I perform a RSA login to our webserver from my vb.net tool exactly how I do from internet explorer? If I could do this, then I can allow my tool to continue to work as it was in the past.

Actually the tool uses the system.net.httpClient to get the webpages content.

 

Any hint will be appreciated.
