Secure notebook with htaccess?

we installed sage-5.9 on a server (Ubuntu 12.04) of our working group. We would like to open the port, such that all members of the team can access the notebook without a ssh tunnel. Is it possible to secure the access with htaccess or something like that?

Or to ask it in an other direction: Is a notebook secure enough without restricting the access? The users are not allowed to create new users. But could this be a security issue for our server?

All software has bugs (or at least should be treated as such). I don't know of any exploits that would enable someone other than the users to access your server if you run the server on ssl (i.e., start the notebook with secure=True and use an https address; that will prevent the passwords from being transmitted over the network in plain text).

(Of course, it's open source software, freely given, so we make no guarantees, use at your own risk, etc.)
