Sounds a bit like "port-knocking" or the newer version, "Single 
Packet Auth" (SPA). There is a app called fwknop that does this - 
google for the site, I don't have it in front of me right now.

Hi list,

I've recently used an SSH server that had an interesting
authentication mechanism. You first had to telnet to the machine 
on a
certain port. After doing this (it will just time out - no 
you then SSH to the server in question. The telnet step has to 
carried out, if not SSH will just time out.

My question is, is this called reflexive firewalling, and can I
duplicate this with iptables?
