Hey all, I see some documentation on HBASE Rest Auth (and I assume this will work with MapR-DB, but does anyone have any examples showing this in action? Like how do we provide credentials to the Rest API? Basic HTTP Auth?  I would be interested in a security discussion around this.  It seems like to make the Rest API truly usable in a secure environment, encryption, authentication, etc should be easy to work with.

Thanks!
