Enhance authentication options for SSPCM API's

The SSPCM requires a username/password to be authenticated, requiring a static (or semi-static) password.  This contravenes many organisations security policies designed to protect access.


An alternate method of authentication would dismiss the requirement to set static password, and store them in scripts / API functions.

e.g.  authenticate via keys or certificates, ability for a local privileged OS user to call the API without authentication, or the ability to retrieve a dynamic password from a password store (e.g. CyberArk)
