Authenticating a Member or Contact (with iOS app)

Hi - I am writing a custom iOS app using the WA API and a requirement is that members sign into the mobile app with the same credentials that they use to access the WA site via a browser (i.e. email, password)

The "contacts" API returns the user's email but not the password (which would clearly be a security issue). So the iOS app cannot verify the members credentials itself.

Is there an API that the iOS app can call to verify the members password? If not, do you have any other suggestions on how this type of member sign in authentciation could be accomplisehd?

Thanks

David
