password-protected cgi-bin directory?


when trying to package agdbnet I stumbled upon the installation instruction

   Put the agcurate.pl script in a password-protected cgi-bin directory. ...
   The software uses apache authentication to check that the user has rights
   to curate the database.

    item 13.)

I wonder what might be the apropriate implementation in Debian because
I do not know that there is anything like a "password-protected cgi-bin
directory".  Has anybody solved a similar problem or is there some
advise to do this reasonably?

Kind regards
