Authenticating Password Using SSL Encryption

I am new to LiveJournal, and want to know if there is a way to SSL encrypt  (i.e., use https) a username/password using either XML-RPC or the Atom API?   I would like to post to a journal using one of these APIs. Also, I read on the following page that the Blogger API (i.e., the Atom API, I presume) is labeled as ‘experimental and alpha’, and will not be developed further. Is this true and is there a risk in using the Atom API with LiveJournal because of this?
