I’ve used webdav based repos for years, and they work well.

On the server side you just need plain old Apache, secure with username/password or certs
(but if you use certs, make sure you use a version of maven that supports them, some of the
versions are broken with respect to SSL handling with respect to certs and/or SNI)
