Maybe you could restrict your open port to connect to just one MAC address

Apache has that level of control or not. Maybe the router will?

If you have a decent netgear router/firewall you should be able to
limit ports to address/network ranges.

You can also do it at the linux box using iptables (same as some
netgear firewalls), and I have written 3 stage
authentication/authorisation handlers for apache quite trivially in
perl, but that requires mod_perl -- although RH, etc usually ship an
apache with mod_perl enabled by default.
