Password protecting Tomcat

Hi,

Is there a way to password protect the whole of tomcat, i.e. not only protecting individual web applications, but all.

i.e. When pointing the browser to http://localhost:8080 The user should be asked for a username and password.

Is there a way of doing this???

Many Thanks
