No matter what extension you're using for authentication the way to obtain
a token is to POST to the /guacamole/api/tokens endpoint a form with the
username and password fields.  This is completely independent of what
authentication mechanism backs Guacamole.

As of 1.0.0 I believe Guacamole client is completely cookie-free, so you
shouldn't have to use that option.  However, why not just deploy the WAR
file as lab.war, in which case the path within Tomcat will match Nginx and
you won't have to worry about the rewriting.
