Common security with Activiti REST API

I can see that the REST api uses basic authentication.
Basically this means that every call must have a header where the user name and password is set.

I want to communicate with the REST api from a Liferay instance in order to run my workflows (on the same server). Is there any way I can reuse the authentication information from Liferay in order to automatically authenticate against the REST api?

Both Liferay and Activiti will use LDAP as the source for users/roles, so the same user information should apply in both places.
