    ​RESTful Web Service Authentication Changes
    I was trying to alter the authentication schema being used by one of our mobile apps.  This app communicates via REST web service calls to the server over a secure connection, so we were initially passing username/password as plaintext to the server for authentication with no issues. Every call to the web services re-authenticated the us...
