I do the same with my nginx configuration:

      (listen '("443 ssl" "[::]:443 ssl"))
      (server-name (list ""))
      (root "/var/www/foo")
         (uri "/")
         (body (list "index index.html;"
                     "auth_basic \"closed site\";"
                     ;; needs to be set manually
                     "auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/htpasswd;")))))
      (ssl-certificate ...)
      (ssl-certificate-key ...))

/etc/nginx/htpasswd may contain:

(I don't remember how to generate that hashed password.)
