[ntp:questions] "autokey URL" question

Someone in my organization suggested using "autokey URL" for pushing
down the keys from our internal time server to the clients and it's been
pushed down to me to implement it.   Now, I can't find anyone who even
knows who started the push for this.  <sigh> 

Simple questions first.
Does anyone know exactly what is meant by "using autokey URL"?  Is it
just having a web page that can be accessed to give you the IFF key for
the server based on your password?  
Or is it deeper than that (i.e. the DNS client itself going out to get
the information on an as required basis)?

Has anyone here done this already and is willing to share the knowledge?
