MVC and ServiceStack Authentication

Is there a way to use the the auth information from my .NET MVC application with my ServiceStack api that is in the same project?

Basically make the [Authenticate] tag in my mvc controller perform the same function in my servicestack api?

You can use ServiceStack’s [Authenticate] to authenticate MVC Controllers using ServiceStack Auth that inherits from ServiceStackController but not the other way around and apply MVC Attributes for ServiceStack Services.
