Yes. This is even a very common setup.

<VirtualHost *:443>

        SSLEngine on

        SSLCertificateFile conf/ssl/web.cert
        SSLCertificateKeyFile conf/ssl/server.key
        SSLCertificateChainFile conf/ssl/web.cert

        <Location /app>
                  AuthType Basic
AuthName "By Invitation Only"
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords
AuthGroupFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/groups
Require group GroupName
