Indeed, normal Allow/Deny is the correct and best way to do this.
mod_security is an alternative if you need things to happen early,
but if Allow/Deny is too late for you that probably points to a
problem in your application.  mod_rewrite will work, but is the
least likely to be the best tool for the job.
