Here is auth request module, it allows authorization based on 
subrequest result.  It works at access phase and therefore may be 
nicely combined with other access modules (access, auth_basic) via 
satisfy directive.

Example usage:

    location /private/ {
        auth_request /auth;

    location = /auth {
        proxy_pass ...
        proxy_set_header X-Original-Uri $request_uri;

To allow access backend should return 200, to disable - 401/403.
