Why on earth would you want to restrict an RSS feed?
What a weird idea. If the stuff is so precious use VPN.

The whole point behind RSS is announcement. TypePad allows you to set up
private blogs which are password protected, and may be what you are looking

But to futz up a specification whose existance is about publication is a
crazy idea.
