IIRC, there was a policy to not handle authorisation and authentication
in the sitemap, and let the web server handle that.

However, you could write a selector to handle it, yes.  Off the top of
my head: just wrap all pages to be protected and test the uses
credentials, if it fails redirect to a "permission denied" page.

There was a discussion about this several months ago - have a look in
the archives.
