Authentication alternatives for REST Webapp

Hello at all,

we have an Enterprise Content Management System and want to trigger the activiti rest services from that ecm system. The ECM application and the activiti rest webapp are using the same LDAP directory. The problem is, that the rest services need username and password as basic authentication. When the user is logged into the ECM Application, it is not possible to readout the password of the current logged in user. So we can not send the login data to the rest webapp. Is there another possibility to send credentials to the rest services?

Thanks and best regards
