Is there a simple way to restrict access to a page or directory. I tried using the code below in web.config but I can't specify a password and I'm not sure where it's looking for credentials. IIS?
TIA
<location path="secure">
    <system.web>
      <authorization>
        <deny users="?" />
        <allow users="myuser" />
      </authorization>
    </system.web>
  </location>

Impersonation / locking down on the server could be an option depending on your context.
