When using Rest Operators how are you securing your passwords when you have to construct a json payload with the user credentials or a header with the user credentials?

    I am running across several API's (including CA products) that require the password to be part of a json payload in an http post.  In these cases the password can't be secured by using the password datatype because PAM considers constructing the json string to be string manipulation.
