Automating classic ASP cookie based authentication

I have a handful of classic ASP pages protected by basic ASP authentication using cookies and a database of username/passwords.

I want to be able to display one of the protected pages in a browser window which is opened using a URL from standard windows application - without the user needing to explicitly log on.

I guess I'm looking for a way of passing a Username/password from the application to the authenticate.asp script without the username and password being visible at any point?
