This is configured in /etc/news/readers.conf
The documentation is really confusing. But don't despair.
Basically you have three scenarios:
1. Authentication and access rights based on IP address
2. Authentication through an external program. "ckpasswd" is shipped
with INN and works on Apache-style password files. All users have
identical access rights in this scenario.
3. Authentication and access rights configured through a custom
perl-script (this is what I use).
