Not quite yet. It's not hard to do it though. You could probably throw
together a script which authenticates manually using the known username
and password (perhaps by spawning 'openconnect --authenticate...') and
then registers itself as  secret-agent for NM.

So instead of the GUI session spawning an auth-dialog on demand to
interact with the server and obtain the login cookie, your own secret-
agent could provide them.
