I just found a nice Note on integrating protocol-level authentication with
user-level interface :

Does anyone know whether this was ever incorporated into any user agents?

This proposal suggests extensions to HTML forms to overcome their present
security problems by integrating them with HTTP (or other security sublayer)
mechanisms. It calls for a new type of form; the AUTHFORM and new values for
the TYPE attribute of the INPUT element and SELECT block.
