The most straightforward way is to interact with the session-
credentials extractor directly to get it to save credentials for you.
Unfortunately, the session-credentials extractor doesn't provide an
API to do this. This would be a worthy addition. We have an internal
session-credential extractor that does this. I don't have time to
work this into the version in zope.app.authentication, but if someone
wants to work on this, I'd be happy to check my code into the sandbox
for someone to work from. Note that it also stores sha-encoded
credentials. The current credentials extractor stores plain-text
passwords in the session data which is extremely lame.
