[midPoint] REST authentication

REST API does not work with browser, so what is the concept of "SSO" here?

We did SSO in past, with HTTP header and with CAS, in core concept it
requires user's browser. If you use REST, you use midPiont in API mode.
There is no SSO AFAIK. You submit user/password every time, as REST is

cheers, P.
