Secured RSS feeds: encryption and passwords

Secured RSS feeds may contain private data or simply data not available to everyone.

Secure syndication

There are two diffente ways to obtain secure syndication:

  1. Encrypted feeds
  2. Password protected feeds

Encrypted feed

Encrypting a RSS feed must be done using a public key encryption.

Password protected feeds

A feed can be password protected. The problem of this solution comes when the password must be shared with a web-based aggregator.
