App Authentication with AFNetworking

There are a lot of tutorials available on AFNetworking, however I haven't been able to find one that shows how to authenticate users. I think that such an important element of an app would have more attention but it seems that is not the case. So I would def pay for a tutorial on best practices for how to do this with a Rails backend if possible please ;)

    As in the iOS app has a username/password and that gets passed to a web service that authenticates a user and then sends back some user specific data? I use a service that passes back a token when the user authenticates and then you pass that token to each subsequent service call. I'd like to see something like that with AFNetworking and blocks. So call method A, but if we don't have a token, call Login method first and then A, if we have a token, just call A.
