Password access to Dump 1090 web page?

I’ve installed PiAware on an RPi 3, it runs fine.

I’d like to open a port in my router to connect to that pi, so that I can check it from other locations. But I don’t want to leave an open port without password protection.

Is there a way to configure PiAware so that access to the dump 1090 web page requires a password? I’m not talking about the command line/SSH access to the pi, I have that. I want to make sure that only those with a password can display that page from my pi.

Skyview is served by the lighttpd webserver.

Maybe you will find a more comprehensive guide searching the web. Good luck.
