In advance, I apologize for not having tested this myself with RT. The 
following is just wild guessing but it's probably the way I'd try to 
go if I had to (and I actually do so in other frameworks): 

You could try to retrieve the RSS data "off-line" by means of some 
command-line tool. Then let your WWW server do the authentication. 
I am using a method called screen scraping by means of Perl's 
WWW::Mechanize. WWW::Mechanize is old but still does a good job.
