Will this be password protected? perhaps when accessed outside the local

Do we really want this accessible to the internet though?

or perhaps there is some way to place a reverse proxy infront of this?
however my attempts to do this in a past have failed as its not treated as

there any recommendations for an apache plugin for this?
