A basic authorization mechanism can be implemented using digest auth.
Similar to session helper with ACTIVE loging we can redirect all http non-authorized traffic to a digest authenticated "LOGIN" by IP service.
It is much more secure then basic auth or a simple user password form.
The other option is to use ssl encrypted page for ip authorization.
