It may be better to ask this on the Jersey user's list.
I would imagine that Jersey provides a way to force the client to be authenticated. This 
would work via a session, and there is probably a way to set the session timeout.
After the last interaction + the timeout, the session will expire, and this should 
automatically force the client to re-authenticate at the next access.
