Use HTTP Basic authentication, with a username of (by default) "source" - you 
can, of course, configure a different username to use for source logins.

You can't currently restrict connections to a specific set of hosts within 
icecast - nobody has been interested in implementing this. A patch would, of 
course, be welcomed.
