    I want to lockdown three or four pages of an otherwise publically access web
    app. You have to login but providing you have the right username and
    password you have access. These 3 or 4 pages should only be accessed from
    certain webservers and of course the hosting server. I was thinking of using
    client certificates but I don't want to make the whole site require them,
    just the one directory. Can I make a virtual directory or a subdomain
    require a client certificate for access. Preferably a virtual directory.
    Also do I have to buy a certificate from a CA. I read somewhere you can
    create your own internal ones as these machines are all hosted by us.
