Once the three-way handshake is complete, the client is in the
server's house, and may go into any room (this is application-layer
now) not forbidden by a security mechanism or law of the land. One
would be hard pressed to argue that an authentication system without a
password set is a security mechanism.

Actually, once the three-way handshake is complete, the situation is more
like "the client is talking to the server at the front door or on the
telephone, and has *not* been specifically invited into the interior of
the house".
