There's a few torrent sites that use a web login-based protection scheme.
The server makes the user authenticate via HTTP or some other scheme,
then generates a token for a user's session and request, encoding it an
announce URL of the form
http://hostname:80/tracker/Ipybe1vH1zbS/announce. This allows for a
transition of state from the authenticated web session into a tracker
communication session, if implemented correctly.
