Anyone know of a way to read password protected RSS feeds on the iPhone or iPad?

Using Typepad, I have a password-protected blog where I post briefings for my boss, who is a public official. My boss wants to be able to use the blog's RSS feed on his iPhone and iPad - however, it seems that mobile Safari cannot read a feed that requires authentication.
I have tried using Feedburner to serve as a sort of translator of my private RSS feed from Typepad. I enter in the name and password there, and it works by generating a non-password protected feed. If I enable Feedburner's password protection service, then I am back to square one.
If there is no app that already does this, someone should be doing it and making money!
