I'm wondering if there is a way to secure an IIS site (Static HTML Pages) to be available only within a specific domain (i.e. user should submit his domain user name and password to browse the site)?

P.S. I'm using IIS7

The way to password protect a site is to change Authentication so that Anonymous Authentication is disabled and Windows Authentication is enabled. Then on your NTFS permissions on disk, assign just the app pool identity + Administrators + SYSTEM + all of the domain users (or a group is better) that need access to the site.
