The magic behind the magnet link

The magnet link is one kind of a feat. In one line it tells to the web browser to open it with a torrent client with the magnet: statement, as in http: then it contains all the necessary info for the client to find the parts of the file: the hash of the files contained in the torrent, to check for it's intergrity, then the name of the upload and lastly a few trackers to ask peers to.
It has one single flaw: there is no client side authentification nor possibility to use a private tracker, so anyone can use it and get the file from another tracker, no way to restrict how much you can share! Not really a flaw after all!!!
