Authentication with User Credentials via Rest Api

I've use Rest API calls on the same thingworxserver in order to "impersonate" de current user to a user which has Application Keys creation permissions (current users shoudn't have this kind of permissions).

 

Could you please explain what exactly is the purpose of doing this. Also, isn't it insecure to pass around appKeys between the client and the Twx application?

I'm not passing around appKeys between client and server, I'm doing it from localhost to localhost (server side), there isn't network transfer related information, also I'm passing the appKey on the Post content not on the URL.
