question regarding doing authentication for a mobile client via REST call

Hello All,
hope you all are doing great.

I have a question regarding how to authenticate a User via REST (using
tastypie) call. I search the group and found something similar here
) but it didnt help much.

I know we can authenticate user using authenticate() method of
django.contrib.auth package.
this method takes username and password (not the hash) as an argument.
so my question is,
its not safe to pass the actual password over the http. and I am not
quite getting the idea how should I go about implementing this service
which will allow mobile clients to login.

I would appreciate your help.
