Hmm, but the authentication done through the apache server is user
authentication, right?  How does that compare to the host
authentication you initiated this discussion with?
Pretty much any authentication possible under linux is available through apache. This includes authentication by user, by host, all of the PAM modules, and a number of others. More, it's available on a per-file and/or per directory or subtree basis which essentially gives you the ability to allow read/write access specifically to bob alone on machine x to file1 but only when he's connecting over an encrypted connection with valid certs on both sides resolving to our own internal circle of trust and authenticated against the company's ldap server, but only when he's using his unix style password, not his samba/smb password and only between the hours of 9am - 5pm.

That's a lot of flexibility.
