If your site has cPanel, there is a section where you can add access  
hosts by IP, in a box that also says:

Host (% wildcard is allowed):

the % means any remote client can connect (if they know the username,  
password and domain)

I examined security issues, but if someone can sniff this info they  
can also sniff the info you're passing to serverside middleware and  
so I don't see how this is any more insecure than other options.
