In my view the best way to do that is to use WebID for authentication 
( see video at http://webid.info/ and the spec at http://webid.info/spec )
and access control ontologies as for example demonstrated in the README
on https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/read-write-web/

An example of an ACL rule written in Turtle is 
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/read-write-web/file/cff4d0159b26/test_www/.meta.n3.off

The advantage of WebID is it ties right into LinkedData and you can use it to
build webs of trust. I am working on building much more interesting demonstrations.
