More on authenticated RSS feeds

Back in September of last year I wrote a post on the lack of support for authenticated RSS feeds and the BIG issues that this was going to cause enterprises trying to do rollouts this year. 

Jon Udell recently mentioned this and the comments and his post are quite useful.  In particular the clarifications around the behavior of Outlook 2007 and the common feed store.

What surprises me is that people consistently seem to think that authenticated RSS is rare, on the Internet maybe – but definitely not in the enterprise.  Although the comments do show that a lot of people and a lot of readers do support authenticated feeds I suspect that most of them will only work with Basic Authentication over SSL.
